Week 1 (June 1st – 6th)Dear Lord, we ask that you will help Hands of Hope reach its financial goals this month. Please bring the support needed to maximize the matching grant that has been awarded by Grace. We ask this so that Hands of Hope can assist families seeking to adopt but don’t have the means to do so on their own.

Week 2 (June 7th – 13th)Father, be with those families that are in the process of adopting. Give them the patience to complete the daunting tasks involved in the adoption process. Bless the children waiting for them. Make them feel secure that they will soon have a family that loves them and will provide form them. Teach the parents and the children to call on you in their time of need.
Romans 10: 11 – 13 – As the scriptures says, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.” For there is no difference between the Jew and the Gentile – the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Week 3 (June 14th – 20th)
God we ask that you bless all of the people involved in Grace Kids Company this year. Bring the volunteers and children safely to and home from camp. Let all who are involved learn something new about your Son, Jesus.

Week 4 (June 21st – 27th) Lord support all of the fathers in or ministry and worldwide. Give them the courage, wisdom and strength it takes to provide spiritually, emotionally and financially for a family. Remind us all to respect and honor our own Father’s. Mend any strained or broken relationship between father’s and their children and bring fathers or father figures into the lives of orphans.

Week 5 (June 28th – July 4th)Father in heaven, we ask for your special blessing for the health of orphans locally and worldwide. Providing medical care is difficult, expensive and especially difficult for the caregivers of many orphans. Strengthen the immune systems of the orphans and supply the nourishment they need to stay in good health and send healing to those that are currently ill.
