February 2020 Prayer Requests
DISCIPLINE THAT CONNECTS ONLINE COURSE HAS BEGUN ONCE AGAIN
Our winter iteration of the Discipline that Connects online course is underway with over 500 parents registered to take the course. Please pray that each parent will commit to do the work in each session and complete the course. Pray that God will turn the hearts of parents toward their kids and the hearts of kids toward their parents!
DEVELOPMENT OF CHINESE AND SPANISH RESOURCES
There is a growing number of requests for Connected Families parenting resources to be available for Spanish and Chinese speakers. We have very limited resources in Spanish and none in Chinese and it takes a highly specialized person to translate well. Please pray that God would raise up people who use and understand our material well to provide the expertise for both written and recorded resources to parents who speak Spanish and Chinese!
FAMILY IN NEED OF PRAYER
A family in our community reached out asking for prayer because their 4th child was born with a condition called Trisomy 13. Babies born with this condition normally live no more than one month after birth. The baby is at home with the family and they are processing it together. Please pray that they may know the presence of God with them and that they will be able to help their kids walk through this extremely difficult time.
CLARITY FOR OUR NEXT PODCAST SERIES
Our podcasts have been well received with nearly 90K downloads through 20 episodes. Our list of subscribers continues growing! Please pray that God would make it clear what our next series focus should be and that we would be in step with His timing!
Jim and Lynne recently returned from an invigorating trip to the San Diego area in which they spoke 4 times to larger audiences than anticipated. Please thank God with us that there was such receptivity to the CF Framework and a desire to grow deeper by many parents!
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, 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.
