Project 5:16 – a prayer initiative
The foster care need is only intensifying. While the Christian community must roll up its’ collective sleeves to serve in specific, material ways, more than ever, such efforts must be ungirded by the equally hard work of fervent prayer. Prayer is by no means all we must do; but, pray we must.
NOT everyone can foster; NOT everyone can adopt; NOT everyone can mentor. BUT, everyone CAN pray. YOU can pray!
Thus, we are excited to introduce Project 5:16, a Fostering Hope prayer initiative.
One of the beautiful things about prayer is that we can pray anytime and anywhere…from our prayer closet to our commute!
James 5:16 extends to us the incredible promise that “the prayer of a righteous person is very powerful in its effect.” We want to claim this promise as we intercede for the foster care community.
We are recruiting people who are willing and able to pray for the foster care community for at least 5 minutes a day, Monday-Friday. Our first goal is to experience 8 hours of collective prayer per day!
If you want to join this initiative, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Fostering Hope will send out a daily email (M-F) that contains one prayer request for that day. The request will be a simple, specific petition for the foster care community that will help to fuel your prayer.
We pursue this initiative with great confidence, not in ourselves, but in the One who promises that “the prayer of a righteous person is very powerful in its effect.” (James 5:16).
We can’t wait to see what God does as we intercede together.
