National Foster Care Prayer Virgil

May 2015

Many kids in foster care feel like they don't have a prayer...let's change that.
 
The National Foster Care Prayer Vigil is a call to believers to join with others to go before God and pray for the more than 400,000 children in our nation’s foster care system, as well as their families, their workers, and the Church’s response to the foster care crisis during the month of May, which is National Foster Care Month. 

Altogether, more than 1,000 vigils have been held in the five short years since this now-global event was launched in May 2008. Join with others around the country in praying for our nation's foster care system.

Would you be willing to give some of your time to join with others to pray for our foster care system?  Join us by praying with:

  • Your family
  • Your small group
  • Your church
  • Your community
  • Your co-workers over lunch
  • Your foster/adoption agency workers

Once you have planned your event, you can register your prayer vigil here.

See the map for a listing of vigils already scheduled. The red flags indicate community vigils that anyone can join. We've also created a downloadable prayer guide that can help you and others know how to pray. 

Do you have friends and family who would also be willing to pray for these children? Please pass along this web site and consider encouraging them to plan their own time of prayer. 

A vigil isn't really about holding candles, staying up late, or even about the event itself. A vigil is about heartfelt, concentrated prayer. A vigil is about settling our hearts on things that matter—petitioning God to move in our world.
