Today we’re going to pray for the people who work in the Foster Care system: those who literally spend their days advocating for the “orphan.”
The burn out rate is high for people in this field. We want to pray this scripture for all the social workers, casas, attorneys, case managers, etc… That they would not grow weary and their strength would be renewed:
Prayer: Father, today we pray that all those working on behalf of children in the foster care system would know and would hear that you are the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. You will not grow tired or weary and your understanding no one can fathom. You give strength to the weary. Lord, strengthen them today. You increase the power of the weak. Lord, increase their power and influence to advocate for children today. Even youths grow tired and young men stumble and fall; But those who hope in You will renew their strength. Father, let them place all their hope in You! We pray that as they hope in You for their strength, they will soar on wings like eagles; They will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
