July 2019 Prayer Requests

Thank you for keeping INFG and its prayer needs before the Throne of Grace.  We are so privileged to have a group of people who decided that the healing of abortion-wounded women, men and families is so important to them that they would commit to praying for us monthly. 

 
 

PRAY FOR THE WOMEN WE LONG TO REACH

As we stand at the mid point in our calendar year, let’s take time this month to slow down and reflect on the past six months. Have I spent time with the Savior? Have I invested my life in activities that benefit  and bring glory to God? 

Next, let’s think about the next six months that lay before us. What people do I need to invest in this next season? Who needs to know about If Not For Grace that is in my circle of friends or contacts?

Let’s pray.

Father, you have revealed yourself to me in this first six months. You have shown me your love, your faithfulness, your gentle rebuke, your guiding hand. Thank you God for ministering so personally to each of us. Today I’m asking you to guide me as I venture into this next six months of 2019. I’m asking you to grant me the ability to hear your voice, and the desire to obey you.

Establish my footsteps in Your word, And do not let any iniquity have dominion over me. Psalm 119:133

The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance, but everyone who is hasty comes only to poverty. Proverbs 2:15

Lord, will you set the stage for me to come into contact with _____________________. I want to share with her about the healing and hope that Jesus provides. I want her to know that she can be free in Christ and I want to share with her about If Not For Grace. Please lead me to her.

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. Psalm 32:8


HER CHOICE TO HEAL

Pray for the July class. 

Father, will you provide good health for each woman to complete the heart work and attend each class. We pray that you will protect her  from the darts the enemy would throw at them,,

Lord, will you prepare the hearts of each participant to  allow the deep healing You alone can bring about in her life.  And, Lord, will you make this healing visible to all around her. May this be something that reflects Your love in and through her. 

He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the LORD and put their trust in him. Psalm 40:3

Prayers for HCTH Team.

Dear God, Bless Sue and Heather as they work together on all things HCTH.  Bless their giftedness and give them favor as they talk with women who complete the intake form as well as church leaders who are considering a HCTH class. 

God, will you bring the women you desire to our website. Help them see they are not alone. Lord, will you open doors at churches to host classes. And, draw the women who you want to facilitate these classes to us.

Lord, we desire expansion into the Northland. Will you open the doors for us to meet with key leaders, pastors, and churches who are ready to offer HCTH. 

Continue to pray….

  • Pray for God to open the doors for 60 women to discover If Not For Grace Ministries this year.

  • Ask and thank God for His guidance as we explore a variety of ways to open a door to women who struggle with the pain of an abortion.

  • Pray for pastors as they prepare messages of hope and grace to their congregations.

RECONCILIATION WEEKEND 

Father, we thank you for the ways you worked in the hearts and minds of each person who attended Reconciliation Weekend. We stand amazed at your deep love for each one and thank you for ministering hope, healing and restoration. 

Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin.  Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:34-36

Lord, we pray for our upcoming Reconciliation Weekend. We know there are many who still need to experience this intimate time with you. Lord, will you prompt them by your Holy Spirit. Confirm in her heart that you have healing for her during this time away.

Lord, we pray for Paige Lucas as she invests her time and talent into the next Reconciliation Weekend. Give her your insight and strength to plan and pull the team together to serve the women you draw.


NEXT STEPS 

Thank you Lord for a wonderful time to connect with the sisterhood of women and families who have experienced your healing touch. We ask that you will be pleased to draw us together to serve you in whatever area you call us.

Lord, we pray for the women who recently completed the HCTH. Lord, we bring each of the eight women to you and ask you to continue the good and pleasing restoration in their lives. May they not forget your mercy, your forgiveness, your love, and your freedom. Seal it in their hearts.

The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him; Daniel 9:9

Lord, in your special way, will you draw each woman to continue to gather with like minded women for the purpose of never forgetting the good work you performed in her life. Help each one to see their need for the study of the Bible, and the community and accountability that comes from regular fellowship. We entrust each one to you.

DONOR RELATIONS

Lord will you bless each one who sacrificially gives to support the work of INFG. Father, will you sustain our donors by your grace and give them your peace and strength.

Father, we pray for the upcoming Savor event. We ask you to be pleased and to receive all the glory for the money that will be raised that evening. Lord, we want each one to see your goodness in their lives and the ministry of INFG.

Lord, we know you care about us so we know you care about what concerns us. We ask you for beautiful weather for this outdoor event. We pray that it would be in the 70s, with a gentle breeze. Thank you Lord!

VOLUNTEER AND PRAYER DEPARTMENTS

We praise you God for the ways you are restoring and healing the volunteers at If Not For Grace. Time and time again, we come to you, on their behalf and ask for a physical healing, emotional or spiritual touch, or provision. And, each time, you rescue them. You are so faithful to the INFG volunteers and we are so thankful!

Father, today we ask you to establish each one in their giftedness. Give them insight as to the area you have prepared them to serve. No longer victims, but victorious, we pray for each volunteer to experience the joy of the Lord as they give their time, talent, and financial resources.
