Beauty From Ashes™ July Prayer Alert

We continue thanking and trusting our Father in Heaven for great and mighty works for His ministry at Beauty From Ashes™. Please join us in praying through the points below this month. 

CLIENTS:  We're grateful for your prayers in the month of June that resulted in clients receiving open doors of employment they are proud of.  Please agree with us that others will have the hope, courage and strength to leave destructive lifestyles. Pray for clients in detox, that they would stay the course, and commit to completing a residential program. Agree with us for  healing, sound minds, strength, wisdom, and encouragement that their past does not define who they are or their future.  Pray they have a hunger and thirst for God's Word and get into churches that will provide a healthy community and support system.  

RESIDENTIAL SAFEHOME:  We asked you to begin praying a couple a months ago and God is moving!  Pray with us for God's direction, wisdom and perfect plan to be accomplished in His perfect timing.  Thank Him for being Jehovah Jireh! 

FUNDING:  Two months ago we asked you to begin praying for $45,000 for a full time Executive Director position. Our goal was $50,000 and we have $45,000 pledged for the new position!  Please agree with us for the remaining budget that includes operational funding for a residential rehabilitative program, an assessment/resource center, and supportive staff.  Currently, even though
 Florida is ranked 3rd in the nation for human trafficking,
 there is no such comprehensive programs providing a seamless continuum of restorative services to victims of commercialized sexual exploitation and human sex trafficking.

OUTREACHES:  Pray that outreach team members would continue to multiply as our territory expands according to God's will.  Thank God for the favor we have with strip club management and employees.  Our July outREACHes will focus on FREEdom™!  
May those we reach receive the revelation of who God is, how much He loves them and embrace the truth that will set them free to be everything they were destined to be. 

Thank God that we now have a local shelter that will provide 3 nights to 10 days of services that include comprehensive mental and physical health assessments! 
Please pray that more churches will step up and support the first and only survivor led, faith based, human sex trafficking victim service agency in the state of Florida.  May community partnerships continue to increase.  Also pray for protection and strengthening of existing Helping Hands Network.  

FREEdom™ HOMES BEST PRACTICES PROJECT:  Pray that God would continue to raise up multiple governmental and non governmental agencies to work collaboratively in the development of the Best Practices for residential homes for sex trafficking victims.  (Currently there is none).  Pray for a spirit of unity and harmony and that these agencies will work together in the best interest of victims.  

CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT:  Please pray for the completion of the project, for the funding for the DVD production, and marketing of campaign.

GRANTS & FOUNDATIONS:  Pray that our current partnerships for grants would result in operational, program, and project funding.  May God impart the wisdom to know which ones to apply for, what agencies to partner with, and that we don't miss submitting proposals to anything that is in God's will that we apply to. 

EVENTS:  Wisdom and discernment to know what and/or who BFA is to be involved with or not.  Pray that God will raise up a BFA Event Coordinator.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS:  Please pray for His will be to be established through our Board of Directors.  Pray they be bonded through the yoke of the Spirit of Jesus Christ.  Agree with us for their health, protection, and active involvement with BFA.

VOLUNTEERS:  Pray for strength, encouragement and perseverance for current volunteers and that God would raise up more called, anointed, and committed servants.   

JULIE SHEMATZ:  Pray that she finish up another semester strong.  She has two more weeks of full time graduate school, interning at the Salvation Army, and four weeks off before the fall semester begins again.  May she rest during her time off, be refreshed, and renewed. 

OTHER LIKE MINISTRIES/AGENCIES:  Pray for unity and collaboration amongst one another, humbleness, wisdom, and patience in reaching, rescuing and restoring victims.  May the level of professionalism be raised.  Pray for balance, biblical priorities, and protection of leadership, marriages, and families.  May healthy boundaries be established and maintained for aftercare providers.  May God's strength and encouragement be imparted to all in the name of Jesus.  


"The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners."  Isaiah 61:1

Thank you for your priceless partnership in prayer and intercession!
