We would love for you to join us in praying for Life Network and our local outreaches into the community. This page is updated monthly with our most recent praises and prayer requests. We have broken out prayers & praises by week so that you can focus your prayers on whatever specific events or needs are occurring in the ministry at the time. Thank you for your heart for our mission and for joining us as prayer partners!
August Prayer Needs
Week 1 (August 1 – 10th)
Most clients that walk through our doors have significant needs, regardless of whether they are coming in for a pregnancy test, an ultrasound, parenting education, mentoring, childbirth classes or post-abortion healing. Many of them have had trauma and great loss in their lives. While we know the answer to these circumstances is healing through a loving relationship with the Lord, sometimes the words we share fall upon hard soil. Please pray that we can share the truth in love as we walk with them through life’s difficult decisions while offering them practical support. Pray for tender open hearts and teachable moments for our clients.
Week 2 (August 11 – 17th)
Pray for the Board of Directors as they meet this month. Pray for wisdom as they continue to seek out the Lord and guide the direction of the ministry. Pray for protection for our President Rich Bennett and his family, as well as all staff and volunteers.
Please continue to pray for the funds needed for the general updating of our pregnancy center and administration building on Galley Road. This building was last updated in 2006, and we are hoping to install new flooring as well as paint and purchase new furnishings this year.
Week 3 (August 18 – 24th)
Please pray for the details preceding the opening of the Life Network Family Thrift Store. Pray for the construction to be completed in a timely manner, for the locating and training of the volunteer staff, for the store to be fully stocked with wonderful merchandise and for an opening date to be identified (early this fall). Praise God that the Director Don Sheely has found and hired a store manager who will help him get the store launched and assist with overseeing day to day operations.
Week 4 (August 25 – 31st)
Please remember Education for a Lifetime this month as they begin a new school year. Pray for the doors to the schools in El Paso County to continue to be opened, not only for the Pursue sexual risk avoidance program, but also for the Who Can Relate suicide prevention program. Pray for the EFL staff and volunteers to be anointed and protected as they bring the message of healthy relationships and commitment to a strong foundation for the future to students this year.
