April Prayer Needs
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
Week One (April 1st – 4th)
What an unexpectedly difficult few weeks we have had. Last month when I wrote the prayer letter, little did I know what our state, our country and our world was going to be experiencing with this COVID-19 pandemic. But this was not a surprise for God, and He knows our needs. Praise God, because we are a medical facility, we can continue to see clients each day. Lives are being saved and transformed, needs are being met and most importantly, we are sharing Christ! Please pray for the staff and volunteers that continue to be on the front lines. Pray for health and protection for them and for their families.
We as a staff have been making phone calls and praying for our partners and supporters. We are praying for emotional, physical and mental health as we weather this storm. Pray for health and financial stability for our community, our state and our country.
Week Two (April 5th – 11th)
Pray for all the staff and volunteers that continue to meet the needs of the ministry. Pray for a peace, a positive outlook and productivity as many of them have been working remotely. Praise God for the technology that gives us the ability to meet as a team as we work offsite.
Pray for our parenting coaches, as they have had to transition from 200 in-person visits a month to primarily video and phone-based appointments. Pray that they can continue to do life with these clients well, even if it looks a little different at the moment.
We are still serving our clients with material items as they complete their classes, but currently we cannot accept in-person material donations because of the COVID-19 guidelines. Please pray that we will have enough items to meet the need through new purchases from our Amazon Wishlist as well as our current supply.
Week Three (April 12th – 18th)
Please pray for the Walk for Life this year. At the time of this writing, we are not sure if we will be able to meet for the Walk for Life on June 6th in-person, or if we will need to do a remote Walk where people walk on their own in their neighborhoods. Either way, the success of the Walk is vitally important for the ministry to continue to provide free services to our community. We have a budgeted goal of $400,000 for the Walk this year and we ask you to pray that the Lord would help us meet that goal.
Week Four (April 19th – 25th)
Pray for the Education for a Lifetime department as they have had to cancel classes for the rest of the year. Pray for the students that are missing the message of how much they are needed, loved and valued. Pray for the parents, students and educators in our community as they navigate the remainder of this year with the uncertainty in our world. We continue to contact schools and look for creative ways to serve the educators as they move to an online system of teaching. Pray for open doors and ways to serve them.
Week Five (April 26th – 30th)
Please pray for the Life Network Family Thrift Store to be able to open and regain any lost ground with donations and customers while being closed.
Please pray for the leaders of the ministry as we continue to navigate the issues resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Please pray for ministry finances to recover. Pray for our Board of Directors, our President Rich Bennett and our executive leadership team.
