Prayer for Royal Family Kids Camp

“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.”
(James 1:27, ESV)

Royal Family Kids camp has been around since 1985, and was founded by Wayne and Diane Tesch. The camp helps over 9,000 children a year. What is Royal Family Kids’ Camp, you may ask? It is a national program focused on bettering the lives of children who are in foster and kinship care. For one week in the summer, foster children around the country are treated like royalty—and are introduced to Jesus and His Love for them. Hundreds of volunteers go through training to know how to help these children, as most of them may have had tumultuous, dark upbringings. The kids are able to enjoy everything from swimming, to daily bible skits, to even an event that celebrates the birthdays of each child attending! These children are truly treated like royalty, because they are: dearly precious to Jesus, and to those who help them.

Want to learn more about Royal Family Kids (RFK)? You can go here. This cause is very near and dear to my heart; as such, I want to lift up every person involved in RFK, from the children to the volunteers. Please lift them up with me!

“Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for caring for the orphan. For the child left behind, the little one who has fallen between the cracks of our society. Thank You for putting it on Wayne and Diane Tesch’s hearts to take these children in and love them, even if only for a week.

Jesus, we pray over the children attending RFK—those who already have, and those who will be in it come summer 2019. We pray in Your Name, Jesus, that even now You would get these children ready to meet and know You. We also pray over every volunteer, that You would prepare their hearts for some very emotional parts of RFK, as well as giving them Your wisdom and insight in how to best take care of and love the children under their care while at RFK.

We praise You for working and loving others through Your People, dear Jesus!
In Jesus’ Name I pray,

Do you know Jesus?

“but Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.’”
(Matthew 19:14, ESV)

Jesus cares deeply for children. Learn more about this amazing God, and why He is relevant in your life, here.


Thank You: An (Apologetically Late) Letter to Veterans & The Members of Our Military

I wrote this last year for Veteran’s Day. More than anything, these men and women need to know the Salvation and Healing that only comes through Jesus– the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, Sovereign over every nation. May they be blessed this year for their service, and may they know Jesus as their Lord and Savior!


This past Saturday, amazing people– people who served in unthinkable wars, and survived some of the world’s most brutal trauma– were celebrated, during Veteran’s Day.

But, honestly and sadly, as much as I hate to admit it, Veteran’s Day was not a holiday that I held in the forefront of my mind– at all. Reading BeautyBeyondBone’s post on how this holiday was basically ignored, I felt both convicted for not truly observing this holiday, and inspired to, once again, write on warfare in honor of Veteran’s Day, all at once.

But what was I to write?

After prayer and the Holy Spirit showing a couple of things to me, I believe I am led to write a short post of appreciation for all of my fellow Americans in the military, while also praying for their safety according to Psalm 91. Here it is.

Dear Fellow Americans in the Military– and…

Our Hearts & Prayers are with Tallahassee


It is with great sadness that I have heard about the yoga studio shooting in Tallahasee, Florida. 2 women lost their lives, and 5 people were wounded in the shooting.

Please pray with me for each of the people involved, as well as their families. ❤ May these people come to know Jesus and His Comfort, even through this.


Taking a Blogging Break

Hi guys. After prayer, and much time with the Lord, I have decided that I must take a break from writing this blog so that I can get back to why I started this blog in the first place: to pray purely for the Chibok girls and Nigeria as a whole.

I don’t know how long I will be taking a break for. Please continue to pray for these girls; and please pray for me, as I take a break to focus solely on getting back to the beginning of why I do this in the first place. Thank you.

The Compassion of God

“But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness. Turn to me and have mercy on me; show your strength in behalf of your servant; save me, because I serve you just as my mother did.”
(Psalm 86:15-16, NIV)

There is no compassion like our God’s.
