Day 16: 30 Days of Prayer for Hope
God said to Solomon, “Since this is your heart’s desire and you have not asked for wealth, possessions or honor, nor for the death of your enemies, and since you have not asked for a long life but for wisdom and knowledge to govern my people over whom I have made you king, therefore wisdom and knowledge will be given you.” (2 Chronicles 1:11-12)
Today the Hope Unlimited Board of Directors meets in Chicago for its annual fall meeting. They will review the budget for next year, talk about funding initiatives, and look at every aspect of the Hope program. But more than anything else, they will pray.
Board gatherings begin on Friday evenings with a special time set aside solely for prayer. On Saturdays, each session begins and ends with times of prayer—and often discussion is set aside for more prayer and seeking of God’s direction. Board members do this because they believe in prayer, and they believe in a God who walks alongside the work of Hope and who loves our kids more than we ever could. Will you pray with us?
Father, as Hope’s Board meets today, give them wisdom, give them strength, and always, always keep the love of your children in the very center of every decision they make.
