July Prayer Alert

Dear Faithful Intercessors, 

Thank you for your continued commitment to intercede for Beauty From Ashes™ Ministries.  Your prayers are vital in the lives of those we serve and they are the foundation of this ministry.  

CLIENTS:  Pray that clients will develop a double portion of faith and courage to trust God with their whole lives and commit to the healing process and journey.  Agree with us that they would see themselves for who they are in Christ and not be defined by their past.  May they all find freedom, healing, and restoration. 

OUTREACHES:  Thank God for the expanded weekly outREACHes we are now implementing and the favor we have with those to whom we reach out.  Thank God for the spirit of unity that exists with our outREACH team and pray that spirit continues as new members join.

SUPPORT & LIFE SKILLS GROUP:  Thank God for the women attending the group, their freedom and personal growth.  Agree with us for transparency, unity, and harmony.  May those who are to be part of the group commit to being there. 

ASSESSMENT/RESOURCE CENTER:  Praise God for the partnership we have with the United Way House. We are currently serving more clients every week, both locally and nationally.  Pray a blessing over Lee Physician's Health Care, the Salvation Army, and United Way for this amazing partnership that affords the opportunity to our clients to receive comprehensive and integrated services. 

STAFF: Pray that staff work in unity together, maintain healthy balance in their lives, and don't become overwhelmed with the amount of work to do with BFA.  Agree with us that they take one day at a time and that the joy of the Lord be their strength. May they trust God in every detail of the day to day operations of BFA. 

VOLUNTEERS and INTERNS:  Thank God for our volunteers and interns!  Agree with us that they be blessed and that more mature and committed volunteers join us.  

EVENTS: Pray for our National Sex Industry OutREACH & AfterCARE Training July 26-28th and the numerous events we are scheduling through the end of the year. Thank God for the variety of events from faith based to secular, to teens, to universities.  Agree with us for discernment in knowing which events we are to accept and those we are not to be aligned with.

FUND RAISING: Pray for our financial partners.  May their giving be returned to them with a 100 fold blessing!  Pray for new partners and creative fund raising ideas.  Thank God with us for sending in the resources from the North, South, East, and West. 

PARTNERSHIPS:  Pray that God would continue to align us with the professional, governmental, private, corporate and faith based partnerships that are of His perfect will and nothing less.  Agree with us that these relationships be protected and that our partners are blessed abundantly. Thank Him for churches that are partnering with BFA and supporting us as missionaries.  May God continue to lay on the hearts of pastors and parishioners a burden to raise awareness and support the work of BFA. 

BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND ADVISORS:  Agree with us for God to provide health, protection, wisdom, encouragement, and divine direction for BFA. Pray for those that are struggling with health issues.  Agree with us for additional board members that are divinely appointed by God for such a time as this. 

OTHER LIKE MINISTRIES/AGENCIES:  Praise God for the partnerships He has provided for us and continue to pray diligently for new ones to be formed.  Agree with us that the level of professional services in faith based organizations be raised and that ministries will work in unity together and not compete with one another. 

FRIDAY PRAYER:  Join us in the spirit every Friday from 8-9am EST to intercede for the victims of commercialized sexual exploitation and sex slavery, as well as the agencies servicing them.  CLICK HERE for Prayer Guide.
