We ask for prayers for Hope Pregnancy Care Center and our ministry here. We need prayers for our current volunteers, and we need more volunteers to help here. We ask people to pray for our Executive Director, our Board of Directors and the young families and mothers who come to us seeking guidance and assistance. Above all we need to keep the unborn children in our prayers so they will have mothers who love them and will allow them to be born!
