365 Days of Prayer
Thanks for your interest in supporting our ministry and mission through prayer. Here are some examples of what to pray for:
- Partner Families - as we select families and through the process of building
- Volunteers - that they sign up with excitement and for their safety
- Resources - that we have the resources we need (materials, sub-contractors, cash) to complete these builds
- Community - we pray these builds add to the existing vibrant community and that the community responds with support and enthusiasm
When you sign up, you'll be signing up for a whole day. That doesn't mean you have to pray the WHOLE day, but just create some intentional time on that day. Share with your family this opportunity for prayer. Share with your faith community. Share on social media. Or simply do what Matthew 6:6 says, "...whenever you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your father who is in secret..." Or, another version from The Message by Eugene Peterson, "Here's what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won't be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense God's grace."
In the sign up we ask for your name, e-mail, phone and address. Why do we need all those things? Well, we need your e-mail so we can remind you of your day. Your phone number is helpful because the week before Jodi, our Volunteer Coordinator, will call you and let you know what is new with Habitat. And, your address is so we can mail you a devotional book.
