Pray with Us!

God answers prayer, and His hand moves mountains for the ministries of Living Hope International. We have witnessed miracles in many lives as a result of prayer, and we rely on your prayers to support every aspect of this ministry.

Please pray for the children, youth, and adults whom God has placed in our path, that they may fully receive His love and mercy. We ask God for the healing and restoration of each child at Esperanza Viva Youth Homes and their families.

Pray for provision of strength, vision, and resources for the leaders and staff to give all the glory to the Lord.

Pray for a great harvest of souls, that God will send out laborers into His fields that are ripe with people who need to hear His good news. Please join us in praise and petition to God for His will to be fully realized!

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
1 John 5:14

Latest prayer requests: August 2019

Esperanza Viva 

  • SCHOOL PREPARATIONS As summer is winding down, we ask that you pray for our children, both new and old, that they would transition well into the new routine of the school year, and enter this season with an eagerness to learn and a good attitude. 
  • CHANGED LIVES Although the children are regularly exposed to the gospel message and Biblical teaching, not all of them have made a choice to follow Christ. Please pray for these kids to come to salvation and begin to follow Jesus. 

Nations School

  • TEACHERS Our first day of school is August 26th. Please pray for all our teachers to start this new school year with a renewed vision and strategy as they teach. 
  • NEW BEGINNINGS Please pray for all the new students starting at Nations School for the first time, that everyone would feel welcome and loved right from the first day.

Nations Ministry Institute

  • NEW ARRIVALS Our fall group of students for the 18-week Level 1 course have arrived. Please pray for a strong start for all 36 students and for wisdom for their leaders.
  • INTENSE TRAINING Several students who graduated from Levels 1 and 2 in June are now beginning their next levels, which include a more intense training. Pray for strength, endurance, and receptive hearts to the Lord’s voice. 

Nations Church

  • CONNECTION GROUPS Connection Groups for families, women, and youth will be meeting again after the summer break. We ask for prayer for many new people to attend these meetings, which are an important tool to share the gospel.
  • YOUTH OUTREACH The last weekend in August, our junior high group and young adult group will be holding events at Nations Church. Please pray for the speaker to bring a message that would impact and challenge them and for many decisions to follow Christ.

Living Hope International 

  • SUMMER VISITORS Please pray for the short-term mission teams that will visit our ministry throughout the summer, that each member would be impacted by their time with the children and receive a profound touch from the Lord. 
  • 25th ANNIVERSARY DINNERS Please pray for a great response to the invitation to our Gala 25 benefit dinners in Minnesota and Wisconsin this fall. We are currently trying to get temporary visas for some of our children to attend the dinners. We ask for your prayers for success in this process.
