Show Notes

During this time of prayer, Herbie Newell identifies how we can pray for Lifeline’s counseling ministry and the lives it impacts.

  • Pray that God would draw each of the families currently served in counseling closer to Himself and provide the ultimate healing that therapy cannot provide.
  • Pray for our current therapists at Lifeline:  Angela, Ashley, Whitney, & Kim – Pray for our therapists to have clarity in how to approach each family, seeing into the heart of each issue.
  • Pray that parents in counseling will be willing and able to understand the aspects of their histories that impact their present interactions.
  • Pray for an internationally adopted child who is still struggling with violent outbursts 4 years after coming home. Ask the Lord to provide rest and confidence this child’s parents and siblings.
  • Pray that families can see past their immediate circumstances to the eternal significance of what they are doing in parenting children from hard places.
  • Pray that moms who bear the brunt of their children’s anger will know how to love and parent in confidence from the Lord.
  • For clarity and discernment as we continue insurance billing and new software programs.
  • Pray for shame that is often pervasive in parents and children. Pray that God will speak truth that will revolutionize their view of themselves.
  • Pray for the strengthening of marriages for our couples in therapy.
  • Pray that the intensive therapy program will become known and helpful to families who need it, and that families will be able to fund this type of therapy.
  • Pray that families who need help will reach out and find Lifeline’s counseling services.
  • Pray that God will increase empathy and compassion in families loving kids from hard places.
  • Praise God for the families He has brought to the counseling department and the work that He has accomplished in each so far.
  • Praise God for the hope He provides to our staff and families!
  • Praise the Lord for the growth of our counseling department including staff, families served, materials, trainings, etc.
  • Praise the Lord for a 5 yo who is doing well. Praise God for her resilience and for stable people that God has placed in her life.
