Prayer Page

Welcome to our prayer page.

Because we believe in the power of prayer, we’re inviting you to pray for Connected Families and to share your prayer requests with us. Each month we send an email to the Prayer Team, and then as needs arise during the month. Enter your name and email address to join*.

April 2021 Prayer Requests


We are currently developing our new website which will be launched later this year. Please pray for good discernment and wisdom in making it practical for the thousands of parents that will use it as well as amazingly functional for our staff. Pray for insight into the needs we may not be able to anticipate a year from now!


Our third coaching cohort will begin April 21st with 9 new trainees joining our eight-month program. Our previous two cohorts had a total of 9 trainees! Please pray for unity as a group, clarity in our training and God’s blessing on our trainees who will take Connected Families to places we never could. Pray for Chad Hayenga as he guides this group and trains them to coach the CF Framework!


NOTE: This prayer request has been shared with you multiple times! There are so many things happening on the international front (specifically in Asia) that we continue requesting focused prayer in this area. Thanks for praying with us!

Many people continue reaching out to us to partner together and reach parents and families far beyond our spheres of influence. We continue asking for prayer for guidance, wisdom, and discernment about who to partner with among the many who are reaching out to us.


Stacy Bellward and Chad Hayenga will be presenting the Discipline that Connects workshop with the CF community in Australia on Friday night, April 9th (Saturday morning for our Aussie friends). Please pray for meaningful connections with our Australian parenting community and for opportunities to grow our reach on a new continent!


  • We are seeing an increase in churches connecting with us for workshops; both live (socially distanced) and online. That feels a little more normal!
  • Our Discipline that Connects online course is wrapping up soon. We have heard many examples and testimonies from parents whose families have been transformed by what they have learned through the course. Praise God!

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, Chris, Dawn, Kara, Lanell, Jen, Mike, Sarah, 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.
