What Is it?
Pisgah Fosters, the foster care and adoption ministry of Mount Pisgah, is raising up loving foster families and committed volunteers – until there are more than enough families for children in need. We are creating a community of support and connection for foster and adoptive families to walk beside them on what can be a challenging and lonely road.
To create awareness of the foster care crisis – often identifying willing foster families. To recruitCare Communities of trained volunteers to surround these families with practical support, enabling approved families to foster longer. Encourage volunteers to serve foster families, which increases their commitment over time until they possibly become foster families themselves.

JOIN OUR CHURCH AS WE PRAY FOR the BODY OF CHRIST TO BE THE PROVISION FOR THESE VULNERABLE CHILDREN.
He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. – Micah 6:8
Prayer: Lord, break my heart for what breaks Yours and give me a personal sense of responsibility to pray regularly for orphans, vulnerable children, families in crisis, my church and my community.
God sets the lonely in families. – Psalm 68:6a
Prayer: Thank you, Almighty God, for the families who have adopted and for those who are in the process of adopting. Please sustain, give wisdom, and provide for their emotional and physical needs.
The King will reply, “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” – Matthew 25:40
Prayer: Father God, we ask you to provide more loving, Christian foster homes where kids can find healing and encounter Jesus Christ as Savior. Please ensure that a child’s first foster home will be their last, as multiple placements reduce the likelihood that children will experience the love and stability needed to grow into mature adults.
And anyone who welcomes a little child like this one on My behalf is welcoming me. – Matthew 18:5
Prayer: Lord please raise up more foster and adoptive families who are motivated and willing to keep sibling groups together. Through your Holy Spirit empower them to love these children and their families well.
Give justice to the weak and fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy: deliver them from the hand of the wicked. – Psalm 82:2-3
Prayer: Lord pour out your mercy and blessing on families in crisis. Heal their emotional wounds and protect their vulnerable children from harm.
Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. – John 14:13
Prayer: Father in Heaven, bring your peace and grace to all who work in foster care and adoption. May your light shine in the darkness.
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
Prayer: Lord, we pray that You would be glorified by your Church taking her rightful place in caring for orphans and vulnerable children.
