the 50 state prayer project.

the 50 state prayer project: be our "50 State Family"!

So, last September during our homeschool time, we introduced to you our “50 State Prayer Project”, where we took two states per day during homeschool time, prayed for them, and learned more about their state capital, state flower, etc. We kept a notebook and asked YOU, the readers, to tell us where you were from and how we could pray for you.

The response was amazing.

Please pray for my family. We are having financial struggles. 
Please pray for my uncle in Michigan. He has cancer and is undergoing chemo. 
Please pray for our friends serving as missionaries in California!

The power of prayer is simply that–POWERFUL–because it does not glorify us as people, or give us any sort of “say” in what happens in life, but it is conversation with the Lord who knows all, and interceding on the behalf of those who need to feel His presence.

SO, this year? We want to feature YOU! Instead of doing two states a day, we are going to do one state a week: 50 states in 52 weeks. A year’s worth of prayer over each lovely spot in our great nation.

Want us to feature your family and state on mywalkwitheden.com? Cool. It is easy. We will feature a new state each Thursday for the next, well, year, and a family that lives there. If we don’t have a family feature that week? Cool. We will share what we have learned about that state that week and carry on.

But we want to hear from you! If you want to be featured, email me at cselkins@mail.com (MAIL.com NOT gmail.com. It is a common mistake!) include a photo of your family and link to your blog or social media (if you want–completely optional!) and answer the three questions below:

1.) Tell us a little bit about your family.
2.) What do you love most about your state? What do you want readers to know about where you live?
3.) How can we pray for you?

Here is the schedule for September and October: 

September 5th: Alabama
September 12th: Alaska
September 19th: Arizona
September 26th: Arkansas

October 3rd: California
October 10th: Colorado
October 17th: Connecticut
October 24th: Delaware
October 31st: Florida

Excited to share your story with our readers! If you are on twitter, use hashtag #50statefamily so we can track your posts!

Alabama, you are up on deck. See you next week!

  1. Oh! Pick us! Pick us! We could use lots of prayer as we serve the Lord here at Ft. Bliss in El Paso! This is such a neat idea. I love it!

  2. You are the coolest. 🙂
    If I “reserve” my spot for Maine, can I answer the questions and do the update later? I am sure a LOT is going to change between now and the time you get to the M- states!!

  3. Oh friend, I am just now catching up on this project. How stinking cool is this? I would loooove if you prayed for my “family” of students that I work with here in Colorado 🙂 We would definitely love your prayers! Should I email you? 🙂
