As a Christian organisation, Fegans believes that our Father in Heaven hears our prayers and regularly answers them.  We acknowledge that this belief is not held by everyone we work with or who support us but we would welcome everyone, of all faiths or none, to join us as we petition our Government as well as our God for the following.  Thank you for joining with us.

National

Dear Heavenly Father, when you see the distress of so many of your children it must break your heart as it does ours.

We give thanks for those campaigning for increased resource to children and young people’s mental health and much needed support for vulnerable families in poverty.

We ask that political leaders and budget holders are stirred into action by the increasing need in the UK, taking the brave decision to invest in their future generation before it is too late. Lord, show them the moral and economic benefits of early intervention and prevention so that they begin to value the lives of your precious, precious children.

We pray that where there is darkness you shine Your light; where there is despair, You bring Your hope; and where there is emptiness, You pour out Your love.

Organisational

Dear Lord, we give thanks for the staff at Fegans who dedicate their time and commitment to give love to vulnerable children. It is an honour and a privilege to work alongside such mighty souls.

As Fegans continues to grow we ask for more space for the Tunbridge Wells office; we are in desperate need for larger premises to allow us to meet the rising need for our services.

We pray that the new Parents Supporting Parents programme will capture the hearts of churches as we are keen to make this available in other towns and would love to partner with them to support vulnerable families in their local area.

We thank you for the financial encouragement we have experienced recently; we ask that donors and Trust funds continue to support our counselling bursary so that we can transform the lives of many more children like Ben featured in the case study.

Children

Dear Heavenly Father, we pray for the young people with whom we work, and give thanks for the wisdom and perception of so many of them. They show such courage and are willing to process difficult and overwhelming emotions and situations, and find healthier ways of living – their awareness is astounding!

We pray for the children who are moving on from counselling at the end of this term. We pray that you continue to hold them and guide them as they change and grow.

We also offer to you, Lord, the children and parents who have been supported by Fegans during this term, that they would be able to cope well during the school holidays. We pray that they enjoy a safe and happy summer break. They are in our thoughts even when we are away from them.
