National Foster Care Month

Will you join us in prayer for vulnerable children?

Imagine all your belongings in a single trash bag. Imagine not knowing where you will lay your head tomorrow night. For some children living in foster care, this unthinkable scenario is a constant reality.

God cares deeply for the more than 400,000 children and youth living in foster care in the US. The Psalmist says, “But You Yourself have seen trouble and grief, observing it in order to take the matter into Your hands. The helpless entrusts himself to You; You are a helper of the fatherless” (Psalm 10:14 HCSB).

May is National Foster Care Month. With that in mind, we urge you to commit time each May to praying for these precious children who matter so much to the One who created them. Praying for kids in foster care doesn’t have to involve special events or showy vigils. It’s simply about concentrated, heartfelt prayer. National Foster Care Month is a chance to petition God to move in our world.

To help you understand how to pray most effectively for kids in foster care, we’ve created a free, downloadable prayer guide. It offers a number of helpful tips, including a plan for devoting prayer to a specific topic for each week of the month. We encourage you to use this prayer guide personally, or with friends or family.

Thank you in advance for spending time in prayer on behalf of “the least of these” (Matthew 25:40).
