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 the 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: April 2020
To all our prayer partners: We value your prayer support, especially at this time of worldwide crisis. We are believing that God will continue to show His faithfulness and care for all of us during this time and we believe that our united prayers will bring about miracles. Thank you for your prayers over every area of the ministry.
- HEALTH Please continue to pray for health and protection from this virus for our children, supervisors, and missionaries.
- ENDURANCE The children and staff at both the Puebla and Matamoros campuses have been observing shelter-in-place for several weeks and will likely continue for some time. Please pray for everyone taking care of the children and performing daily duties, that they would have patience, endurance, and grace through this unique time.
- EXTENDED BREAK Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Nations School has canceled school for all grade levels from March 19th until April 30th. The high-school students have been able to continue classes online and the lower grade levels were given assignments to complete at home. Please pray for the teachers, students, and their families during this time; for patience and focus as they carry on with school as well as they can.
- ONLINE SCHOOL With this contingency, we are exploring options for online classes for Nations School. Pray for wisdom and direction for our administrators as we move forward into this new way of teaching.
Esperanza Viva Clinic
- GRACE AND STRENGTH Please continue to pray for good health, strength, wisdom, and grace for our clinic staff members who are tirelessly caring for the children and workers around the clock. The clinic team is involved in all of the hygienic and medical protocols and is also preparing the clinic inventory in case of urgent medical needs. Please pray for the team, as their workload has greatly increased in efforts to ensure the health and safety of all our children and staff.
- ONLINE CONNECTION As we are temporarily unable to hold regular in-person church services, small group meetings, and discipleship courses, we are using online methods to keep the congregation connected. Pray that the Nations Church family would continue in their walk with the Lord, and their faith would get stronger while staying “plugged in” remotely through technology.
- MULTIMEDIA Please help us pray for our entire team of multimedia production, children’s ministry, youth ministry, and small groups. At this time, all the content that we are making available goes through these departments; your prayers for supernatural creativity are much appreciated.
- PASTORS As a church, we have actively sought to partner with and unite pastors all over Mexico. Many of them are facing difficulties since the spread of COVID-19. Please keep the pastors, their families, and churches in your prayers.
Nations Ministry Institute (La Viña)
- GROWTH FOR STUDENTS While we are grateful that our students from all three levels are in good health, we recently suspended the current Level One course. We also gave the Level Two and Three students the option of returning home to their families, and several of them chose to do so. Please pray for these young people as they return to their homes and continue to seek the Lord for His will for their lives.
Living Hope International
- CONSTRUCTION We would appreciate prayer for the ongoing project on our Multipurpose Building in Puebla. The daily work on the project continues, and precautionary measures are in place as the builders are on site. Pray for the Lord’s perfect timing for this project to be completed, and for good health for everyone directly involved.
- STRATEGIC PLANNING The ministry leadership team is facing important decisions for the well-being of the children, staff, school, ministry institute, church, and remote missions during this global crisis and beyond. Your prayers are appreciated for divine wisdom and strategic steps in each decision and its implementation.
