Invitation to Prayer

Faces of Children is an ecumenical prayer ministry under the auspices of First Presbyterian Church of Midland, Texas. Our mission is to initiate ministries of prayer for children in churches, communities, and neighborhoods. In doing so, we seek to provide an opportunity for people of God to join together, learn about children and their needs throughout the world, and celebrate Christ's love (especially as it relates to children).

To Love Those Whom I Do Not Love


You who love this person whom I do not love,

you who read the hearts of others whom I do not understand,

you who know the inmost suffering of those whom I ignore,

you who discern the efforts of each one in attitudes which I perceive as deceitful:
     open my eyes and my heart.

You also know me far better than I know myself;
     you love me better than I love myself...

Lord! Teach me to love with your love.

A message from Chris Laufer, Coordinator, Faces of Children

Greetings, Faces of Children Intercessor,

The Faces of Children prayer group will meet on Wednesday, November 7, 2012 at 11:30 a.m. in the Bride’s room at First Presbyterian Church-Midland, with lunch ($5) and fellowship to follow.

If you have prayer concerns or celebrations about children, those who care for them, those who have authority over them, or those who harm them (the really hard prayers to say sometimes), please send them to me at at claufer@facesofchildren.net, or give me a call.

Grace and peace,
