To gather Christians together across the nation during the week of May 17-24, to pray for the children, workers and families in the United States foster care system
The National Foster Care Prayer Vigil is calling followers of Christ together across the country during the week of May 17-24 to cry out to God on behalf of children and youth in our nation's foster care system, their families, their workers, and the church as it responds to the needs of those involved in the foster care system.
A prayer vigil can take on many forms. It can be a formal, church-wide event, or it can be an informal gathering with your family after dinner. In fact, the possibilities are endless. A prayer vigil can be:
• Part of a regular Bible study group in your home
• Part of a regular Community Group meeting
• Part of a Sunday School class
• A Prayer walk through your city
• A gathering of friends at a park, or the beach
• A lunchtime gathering with co-workers
• Whatever and wherever you want it to be
The important thing is not what the vigil looks like or how well it's planned, but rather that believers come together to pray for those in need.
Is God calling you to be the voice for those in your city? Visit www.FosterCarePrayerVigil.org to get started.
Gather together. Pray for the kids. Watch God work.
