Prayer Tree

Last weekend we held our Annual Liberty Godparent Foundation Open House.  This is one day of the year that we open the Home to those that want to learn more about our program, see the property and enjoy some homemade snacks.  

This year we did something different... we created a Prayer Tree.  Having supporters prayer for our ministries is a priceless treasure.  It was our goal to place different requests and names on red tags so people could specifically prayer through the year as the Holy Spirit brings it to mind.  What a blessing it was to see the tags leave the tree knowing that people are committed to pray for us... even specifically by name!

As the day finished up, tags still remained on the tree.  Each tag represents a person or a request so I thought it would be appropriate to share the remaining "tags" with you.  Would you commit to pray for one of the "tags" listed below?   (the following list is in the order they were removed from the tree at clean-up)

~ Lauren (LGH Case Manager)---works with each resident on goals, behaviors and plans for the future. Pray for wisdom, clarity and discernment
~ Donors-- protection and blessings for those that supports this ministry
~ Father of the Baby-- personal growth, clarity, wisdom, peace
~ Board Members-- energy as they lead, wisdom for the future
