As we prepare for the season of lent, the LEAP Foundation has been blessed to have key partnerships with local churches that support us with their prayers, financial gifts, and their services to help support our mission of enhancing and enriching the lives of people around the world by providing specialized medical and surgical services inspired by the love of Christ.
For each week in the lenten season, we will have one of our church partners pray for the LEAP Foundation; specifically, we will be uplifted in prayer for those patients still in need, for those patients and families with whom we have already served, for all of our wonderful, tireless volunteers, our supporters within our host countries, those countries that have a need with whom we hope to serve in the future, our dedicated staff, and the heart and vision of Craig and Robin Hobar.
The first week of lent will be led by Pastor John McKinzie of Hope Fellowship, who offers the following prayer:
Lord, thank you for your continued guidance and direction as you lead this ministry. We pray for your strength for the nurses, surgeons, anesthesiologists, and all the support staff who give so much of their time, talent and resources. Thank you for their commitment and we pray that you continue to send others who are willing to give and serve alongside of them. We pray for the children and adults they are traveling to serve – those that need your grace as they struggle with the afflictions of this world. We pray for your financial provision to be beyond what the needs are so that these people can receive the help they need and deserve. May the impossible become possible through you. We thank you for the LEAP foundation and their love for those who are hurting. May they continue to be your hands, feet and heart to this world.
As this church family prays for us, we ask that our LEAP family also pray for Hope Fellowship Church.
I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10
