H.O.P.E. Ministry (Helping Our Prodigals Eternally & Helping Overwhelmed Parents Endure)

The beginning of H.O.P.E.


H. O. P. E. Ministry was born from a compassion for hurting parents and other family members of prodigals.  Having a prodigal of our own for fifteen years, the experience, the prompting of the Holy Spirit, as well  as the encouragement of the Prayer Coordinator of the Pentecostals of Alexandria ( Vani Xavier),  we felt directed to  encourage those who are experiencing the same heartbreak.


So, with the blessings of Pastor Anthony Mangun, Prayers for Prodigals was launched, later to become H.O.P.E. Ministry (a prayer ministry for prodigals and  parents and those who love them).


H.O.P.E. Ministry meets twice each month for those who wish to pray for prodigals. During these powerful  prayer meetings we have experienced testimonies of encouragement, deliverance, and M I A’s  coming  home.


We encourage you to begin a like ministry in your church and/or join us along with over 200 churches, prayer groups, and  individuals as we unite to pray the 90 days of prayer together, resourced from a book by James Banks entitled Prayers for Prodigals. You may email us with any questions, or if you are in need of prayer or encouragement.  We are also available if you are interested in helping your prayer group launch a H.O.P.E. Ministry in your church.  Our contact information can be found below as well as information regarding our United Prayer Plan.
