Praise and Gratitude

PRAISEOver the next six weeks, the Prayer Ministry will focus on Praising God and expressing Gratitude for our many blessings.

We want you to count your blessings and also tell us some of the ways God has blessed you and your family. We will share some of your remarks and photos in a special presentation during a Sunday worship service. Look for tables located near entrances where special cards will be provided to write down ways you have been blessed. This is for children and adults! After writing your card and placing it in the basket, be sure to take a "Gratitude Rock" to remind you to praise and thank God every day for your blessings. A wonderful blessing we all share is: We are free Americans and we live in the most wonderful country in the world. You take it from there!

Prayer Request

  • Pray for the 400,000 children in foster care in the U.S.
  • Pray for the foster families and the churches involved in foster care ministry.
  • Pray for the social workers, judges and everyone involved in child welfare across the country.
  • Pray that God moves on the hearts of individuals and ministries who are called to the ministry of foster care.

Lord, we pray for peace for every child in foster care across the nation.

"All your children will be taught by the Lord, and great will be their peace." Isaiah 54:13

Many children who enter foster care are filled with fears and worries—from their family problems to the issues of crime and unrest in the world. We must pray that they will grow in their trust in God and that the peace of God will cover them regardless of the surrounding circumstances.
