Pray with JFA - December 2017

Pray with JFA for “One Person at a Time”: 

Last month, we published our year-end report, “2,017+ Conversations in 2017,”  featuring names of hundreds of people with whom we interacted in 2017. This month, we suggest using Steve Wagner’s Christmas letter and the JFA photos page as additional aids for reflection and prayer. Pray slowly through each name and picture, asking God to cause the seeds planted in the heart to bear fruit. Pray for each person to love unborn children and their parents in action. Pray for each person to grow in the love of God through Jesus Christ.

 

 

Continue to Pray for God’s Provision During the Year-End Giving Period: 

We continue to trust God to provide for JFA. You can help by praying with us and considering a special year-end gift.
