If you think prayer matters, YOU’RE INVITED

My life experience has told me:  PRAYER MATTERS.  If your experience is the same, I invite you to join me, Renaissance Man, and a whole host of others to pray for the children I often mention here. Children who once knew no hope… but now do.


Here’s the invitation directly from Renaissance Man…

Dear Friends:


Last year we at Hope Unlimited for Children invited our friends, supporters, and partner churches to join us for 30 Days of Prayer for Hope. The response was overwhelming. Without any question, we received more positive feedback from that simple request than anything we had done previously.

We quickly realized that we needed annually to set aside a time to pray together.

Beginning today—and for the next 30 days leading up to Orphan Sunday on Nov. 2—I will post a very short devotion, Scripture, and prayer prompter on my blog. I ask that you pause for just a few moments and pray for the children, staff, and work of Hope Unlimited.


I’ll be sharing stories of some of our kids. I want you to better understand their lives, their contexts, and their hopes for the future. Many of the stories will be new to you; a few have appeared here previously in some format. Please plan to share these stories via social media, email, and personal conversations.


Each story you will read is a story retold many times in the lives of the children cared for on Hope campuses.


So when you read about Paulo, think also of Antonio, Alexandre, Dolores, and Tiani. They all need and greatly treasure your prayers.


Many blessings, and I look forward to praying with you.

P.S.  This is an open invitation to anyone willing to invest in the lives of Hope’s kids. Encourage others to join you in praying for the children—the least of these—those our Lord called his brothers and sisters.


If you’ll commit to praying with us for the next 30 days, click HERE to go to Renaissance Man’s blog to read the first day’s devotional. From there you can subscribe to get the blog updates if you wish.


Literally, the lives of children depend on us! Thank you in advance to every My Place to Yours friend who’s “all in” with us.


Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
