Episode Date
Episode 4: A Prayer for Foster Care
11:04

More than 400,000 children are in foster care in the United States. May is National Foster Care Month, and for this episode, we’ll be reflecting on God as a loving parent through Psalm 86:15. Even if foster care is not part of your journey, we invite you to pray with us for the caregivers and children whose stories include it.

Episode 3: A Prayer for Hearing God
08:33

Hearing God doesn’t require us to be in just the right environment and under the perfect conditions. What if we asked to hear God in the ordinary or unexpected? This episode, we read from John 10:27 and offer a prayer for hearing the One who is present in all of the details of our everyday.
