National Foster Care Month

There are over 400,000 children in our nation's foster care system.   As you can imagine that translates into foster care affecting a very large number of people.  While the children are most definitely impacted there are also the families of those children, the foster family that fills the gap, the caseworkers and counselors that oversee the cases, and the attorneys and judges that work through all the information and difficulties.

In the month of March 2014 approximately 200 children were taken into temporary custody in downstate Illinois.*

May is National Foster Care Month.  Please join many others across the nation in praying for those lives that are affected by foster care.  Pray for the churches to fulfill the role that the Lord has for them in caring for these children and families.

You can use the link below from to download a Foster Care Prayer Guide to help you, your family, and perhaps some friends in praying for those who are involved in foster care.
