What Others Are Saying

“Words can hardly express how much I appreciate your teaching at our Sunday school class and your sharing of your notes, and the most important, your encouragement.”

“After watching your video, I started praying with my wife again.  We’re doing it and are encouraged to refresh our vision and prayer life together.”

Why You Should Give

I want to reach out personally to ask you to consider supporting this brand new organization that my wife and I have been assisting with. I’m well aware that there are many “good” places to sow your finances and support, but I am hoping that you will get inspired by what they are doing, and be willing to give in a way that can help Praying Families grow.

Praying Families is being launched by some wonderful friends of ours, John and Sarah Markman. They have four children, and to know them all is to witness something remarkable. They have somehow managed to incubate a culture of worship and prayer within their home, and are very skilled and generous in how they have led others to do similar.

Their whole vision is to see thousands of homes where reading the Bible, praying and singing to Jesus as families is normal. They are creating resources like books, videos and courses to equip families to overcome some of the major challenges like not having the time or seeing a model for family worship.

I think that a culture of prayer and worship in our marriages and families is a vital part of God’s design. But, like John says, it’s just not happening. We have a sincere passion and desire is to see families empowered with practical and Biblical wisdom in order to raise up healthy future generations.

As you consider giving, I want to recommend you to give to Praying Families.

I don’t ask this lightly, and I know that you want to be strategic in your giving. In my opinion, this would be one of the most strategic investments you could make.
