We believe in the power of prayer.
How wonderful it is that we can talk directly with God and that he hears our praises and our requests. At Pacific Lifeline we believe that prayer is an essential piece of our work. We work with women who come from difficult pasts; prison, drugs, abuse, rape, losing children, homelessness, domestic violence. Pray for the woman and children who live at Pacific Lifeline. Although they do not know you, your prayers can change their life.
