November 2019 Prayer Requests
In 2019 we have been experimenting with many new things at Connected Families. Please pray that we would learn and grow in our efforts to help more parents with these new resources!
DISCIPLINE THAT CONNECTS ONLINE COURSE IS HALFWAY COMPLETED!
Over 800 families are participating in our Discipline That Connects online course this fall. We are so excited about this! Please pray that parents would be committed to finishing the course and that the impact of the course would be felt for generations to come in every family.
YEAR-END FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN
We are asking God to help us raise $200k by the end of the 2019 calendar year. Please join us in praying that God would open the hearts of many people to generously help us meet that goal so that we can launch strongly into what God has for us in 2020!
NEW PODCAST AIMED AT DADS LAUNCHING IN JANUARY OF 2020
Jim Jackson and Chad Hayenga are working on the content for an upcoming podcast series specifically focused on helping dads. Please pray for clarity on the topics that will be covered and focused and clear communication while recording the series just before Thanksgiving. Pray that many dads would be inspired and equipped!
SCRIPT WRITING FOR OUR NEW ONLINE COURSE
For the first time in CF history, someone other than Jim and Lynne will be writing and recording an online course! Stacy Bellward and Chad Hayenga are working on a course which equips parents to use good questions to help grow wisdom and responsibility in their kids. Please pray for inspired and clear writing of the script and for fun and creative ways to help parents grow in this important skill! Pray that Stacy and Chad would sense the Spirit’s leading in this process.
OVERWHELMING RESPONSE TO JIM’S ARTICLE FOLLOWING HIS DAD’S DEATH
Jim’s father passed away in October and Jim felt led to write an article about how his dad impacted his life; the good and the hard. Since the article was sent out, many have responded indicating it was deeply impactful for them. Please pray that Jim’s article will lead many to reconciled relationships involving adult kids and their parents! Pray for a turning of heart of parents toward their kids and vice versa.
Our speaking season is well underway with hundreds of parents being reached through workshops each week.
ONGOING PRAYER REQUESTS:
- For the health and wellness of all of our staff including our parent coaches (Lynne and Chad), our workshop speakers (Jim, Lynne, Chad, Stacy, and Anna) and our support team (April, Lanell, Jen, Sharon, and Stacy).
- For parents everywhere who are struggling to parent with God’s grace and truth.
- For our ministry as a whole, that God would be glorified in all we do.
