There is power in prayer – please join together with our programs to pray for Puerto Rico and all those in the path of hurricane Maria and those still recovering from Harvey and Irma. Together we are stronger.

A prayer from our Chaplain Vanessa Pena - Lord, we come to you Father for safety, protection, and wisdom. We saw how you sheltered us from Irma and Lord we ask that you do the same for Puerto Rico and all the islands in the path of Maria. God help us at VOAF prepare for this storm­­­ and the aftermath, use us Lord to help those in need; in your Son’s we pray, Amen.
