A prayer for every broken heart in foster care —

Lord,

It’s one of the most unfair and heartbreaking injustices for a child to feel unloved and abandoned by the people in this world they’re meant to rely on. For a lot of these kids, the darkness doesn’t end there. It’s common for kids to shift from family to family and sometimes they never find a forever home.


We cry out to you as our Heavenly Father, please pour out your love and mighty power to move in the lives of the estimated 400,000 kids in the foster care system. Tell them they are loved; they are valued, and they hold a special place in your Kingdom. They are made for Kingdom work.


Show us how to love these kids. Make it positively clear and convict our hearts in the moments when you want us to act and speak your words.


We pray these things in Jesus’ name,


Amen.
