Hearts at Home Day of Prayer and Fasting

When we work, we work.  When we pray, God works.

Last Thursday, I invited you to join us today for a day of prayer and fasting.  Whether you’re just pausing as you read this post to pray, or you’ve decided to join us in setting aside the day to fast and pray, I want to thank you for joining us.

Remember that you can pray throughout your day even as you go about doing your daily routine.  If you’re fasting, let the feeling of hunger prompt you to pray.  (If you’ve never fasted and prayed before, you can download three info sheets on my blog here.)

Today we are praying for the 2012 Hearts at Home conference year and specifically praying for the upcoming National conference in Normal, IL March 16-17.  Already over 5,600 moms are planning on joining us with more registrations coming in everyday!  God will be at work that weekend and we have so much to talk to God about.  Please pray for:

  • the speakers and work they are doing preparing for their messages.
  • the Hearts at Home leadership who are getting ready for the conference.
  • drama/music preparation
  • logistics of conference schedules, lunch pickups, exhibits, and more.
  • the hearts of each mom attending–that God will have fertile soil in which to plant seeds of hope and truth
  • the moms who will be attending with broken hearts or going through difficult challenges.
  • the weather (warm and sunny is so helpful!)
  • stamina for the speakers, volunteers, and staff (it’s two very-long days for those behind the scenes)
  • whatever God lays on your heart to pray for

We’re also praying for the marriages and families of Hearts at Home moms.    Please pray for:

  • My family: that healing and restoration will take place.
  • broken marriages to be restored
  • broken hearts will be mended where hurt exists
  • hope to be established where hopelessness exists
  • adoptions that are in process to proceed swiftly
  • wisdom for parenting challenges Hearts at Home moms are facing
  • health challenges Hearts at Home moms are facing themselves or within their family

And we’re praying for anything else that God lays on our heart to pray about.  Let God lead you, guide you, and speak to you today.

  1. In Him, we live and move and have our being…praying today that the Creator will have His way at the conference and totally saturate Hearts at Home with His presence today. Praying that God will pull Mark out of the pit and set his feet on the rock. Asking God for a complete turnaround for your family Jill. Love and blessings and encouragement to you today.

    Whew, brought tears to my eyes…thanks for including those of us that are adopting. The timing of your request couldn’t be more perfect, thank you.

    Jill, when you mentioned this last week, I thought, “I ought to do that.” This morning God reminded me of it first thing. I prayed for you and Hearts at Home–the conference I attended last year was such a blessing to me. And I also prayed for a situation I’m facing this week. The timing could not have been better. Thanks for inviting us on this journey with you. May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you will overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Rom. 15:13)

  4. 2 Timothy2:20-21 ‘In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for special purposes and some for common use. Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work’.

    My fervent prayer is that all of us be cleansed of our inequities and be used for our Master’s special purposes.

    Thank you for inviting me in this great journey of life. I consider myself blessed to be a part of this event though not in person, but at least in spirit.
