Day 24: 30 Days of Prayer for Hope
So this is what the Sovereign Lord says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic.” (Isaiah 28:16)
For many Hope Unlimited kids, being launched into freedom can be terrifying. The only period of real independence many of them have ever known were the years spent abandoned to the street by the adults who should have taken care of them. This new beginning is a big—and sometimes very scary—step. They will either step out in confidence or fearfully run back to the old lives they used to know. That’s why we work so hard to assure them that, even though they may have their own apartments and lives outside of our campus walls, we are still their family—supporting, loving and praying. Standing alongside them as they begin building a future for themselves and their future generations.
Stop by a Hope campus any day of the week, and you will see graduates making homecoming visits—sharing stories of their successes and challenges with previous houseparents, receiving hugs and encouragement, and spending time with their family—just as any young adult would do. Pray with us today for the successful transition of our graduates.
We pray for the young graduates who tentatively strike out on their own after years spent in the safety of Hope Unlimited’s care. Comfort them and help them as they build brighter futures for themselves and their future generations.
