June 2024 Prayer Requests

CF Certified Parent Coaching Application Deadline – June 30

Praise—We are accepting applications for those interested in becoming certified parent coaches through Connected Families through June 30. You can fill out the interest form and find more information about our program here.

Prayer – Please pray that God will direct people to the CF Parent Coaching Program who have a heart to grow in God’s grace and truth while utilizing the CF Framework. Pray that there will be a full cohort of 24 people who will enter into October’s training. October will be our 10th training cohort!

The Ministry Partnership Program Is Up and Running

Praise – A year ago at this time, with a small group of three organizations, we began BETA testing our Ministry Partnership Program. In 2023, we had one large national ministry, Family Life Canada, a small non-profit to single parents, Pearl Promise, and a preschool, Kiddie Prep School, join our ranks as official ministry partners! We also hired Dr. Cindy Wilson to oversee the program. Praise God for Cindy and her leadership of this program. Since the beginning of 2024, when we officially launched the Ministry Partnership Program, we have added six more ministry partners!

Prayer – Please pray that God will move in the hearts of ministry leaders (churches, schools, mission organizations, and non-profits serving families) to consider a partnership with Connected Families. Pray that CF will be able to respond well to the many needs our ministry partners are facing in equipping the next generation of parents.

Connected Families Week of Sharing Aug 1-7, 2024

Praise – Momentum is building. Parents are seeking support. Every day, nearly 75 new moms and dads subscribe to receive grace-filled parenting guidance! As their hearts are being transformed they are talking about it and inviting others to experience more of God’s grace and pass that on to their children.

Prayer – Join us in prayer for the first-ever Connected Families Week of Sharing, August 1-7, 2024. It’s all about peer-to-peer sharing and joyful giving. Pray that people will boldly speak about how God has transformed their hearts and families through the CF Framework. Pray that their excitement and energy around this ministry will organically reach those we might never be able to reach on our own. Pray for sponsors to step up and make financial contributions that impact generations. Pray for joyful generosity that spurs the ministry forward so that more weary moms and dads experience the freeing grace of Christ in their parenting.

Anna Braasch – CF Executive Director, is on Sabbatical

Praise – Anna means so much to Connected Families. Her impact cannot be overstated. Anna is on Sabbatical until mid-July, seeking refreshment from the Lord and considering what He may want to do in and through Connected Families in the future.

Prayer – Please pray for Anna as she is away from Connected Families for this extended time. Pray for times of refreshment for her and that she may discern whatever it is the Lord wants to show her. Also, pray for us, the Connected Families staff, as Anna is away!
