Praying for Foster Families

Prayer Prompts

  1. Pray that children in foster care would experience a feeling of belonging in a foster family, a church community, or a group of friends within your community.
  2. Pray for the kids in foster care in your local schools that they would find friends and encounter compassionate teachers who help them through tough transitions.
  3. Pray for the relationships between biological parents, foster parents, and the foster care system; that biological parents feel heard and that others are able to extend compassion.
  4. Pray that every youth who ages out of the foster care system in your community would have the resources necessary to survive and to thrive as an adult living on their own.
  5. Pray for endurance and for strength for foster parents in your community as they invite children into their families. Pray for peace and understanding in every relationship — with the foster children, with their biological children, with the biological families of the foster children, with social workers, and with their community.
  6. Pray for the kids in foster care in your local schools that they would find friends and encounter compassionate teachers who help them through tough transitions.
