A New Life Group for Praying Parents
Starts Sept 9th
           Raising children is hard. So hard, in fact, that the only perfect parent, God, also had rebellious children. In my journey of parenthood, there have been times when I felt so lonely, powerless, and even paralyzed at times by fear for my children. Often, my only recourse was to pray. Solace came through personal prayers and those of intercession through our small group. This summer, I picked up a book about praying for adult children and began praying though it for my children and grandchildren. It occurred to me that a group of parents who desire to pray intentionally about their children would be a powerful weapon against the enemy. So, as a parent, I’d like to invite you to a place of safety and refuge, a place where you can reveal your concerns for your children in a judgment-free zone, and we can pray together for our children’s needs.
Again, I tell you truly that if two of you on the earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by My Father in heaven. For where two or three gather together in My name, there am I with them.” ~ Matthew 18:19-20
Who : Joan and Tom Hilton and all parents who want to pray for their children in a focused way
What : A Life Group that will meet to pray intentionally for our children’s specific needs
When : Beginning Monday, September 9, then every other Monday, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Where : 1044 Birchdale Drive Charleston, SC 29412
How : We will meet in person every other week, and connect through a chat-room format as needed
Call or email Joan if you have questions or are interested in joining the group.
