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!
Latest prayer requests: March 2019
- HEALING HEARTS Please continue to pray for all of the kids at our Puebla and Matamoros campuses, for deep healing in their hearts from the past hurts they are carrying. Many times the children and young people are struggling to get past the pain, and it can affect their behavior and their school work.
- RECENT DEPARTURES Several of our young people have recently left Esperanza Viva Youth Homes to be rejoined with their families. Please pray for them during this transition, and for the children they lived with here to be comforted as they are missing their friends and former roommates.
- SPECIALIZED EDUCATION We have created a special course designed to help the elementary students who have had little to no schooling, to have their personal learning needs met by identifying their varying learning styles and then applying techniques to better prepare them for success in their education. Please pray for this group of students and their teacher, that they would make good progress during the remainder of the school year. Please continue to pray for all of our students and their academic progress.
- SPIRITUAL GROWTH Our weekly Connection Groups are in their second teaching series of the year. There are groups for families, women, and youth. Please pray for the people attending the groups to continue to grow in their walk with the Lord.
- YOUTH EVANGELISM The adolescent and youth groups are having weekly small group meetings and a large gathering every month. The theme for March is “I am light.” Please pray for a great turnout and for the youth to be challenged in the area of sharing the gospel.
La Viña Ministry Institute
- STUDENT ENDURANCE Our Level 1 students have completed their first month and have been working hard as they grow closer to the Lord. We ask that you pray for their upcoming Faith Challenges, weeks focused on intimacy with God, service/volunteer times, as well as missions trips within Mexico. With this rigorous time can come the temptation to give up, and we ask for prayers for their perseverance.
Living Hope Clinic
- MEDICAL MISSIONS We have several medical missions teams coming to serve in the clinic this month. The clinic will host a dental campaign and will provide wellness check-ups for all the children. Pray for these teams, for safe travel and also the safe transportation of their equipment and supplies to the clinic, and that God impacts each one of their lives while they are here.
