Team Timothy is The Family Foundation’s prayer ministry. As we have sought to be obedient to Paul’s charge in 1 Timothy 2:1-4, Team Timothy has seen and experienced God’s grace and His hand working in answer to prayer. We realize that our past legislative and electoral successes can be attributed to God alone. Will you join with us as we give thanks to God and enter into prayer for all those in authority as well as the cultural issues facing our communities?
Every Tuesday, The Family Foundation leads prayer at or near the state Capitol, praying for those in authority and for our culture. There is a conference call number for those who cannot attend in person, but would like to join by phone. Contact Sean Maguire at 804-343-0010 or join our Facebook group to learn more.
Nun is the Arabic letter used by persecutors of Christians throughout the near east. It is a symbol of solidarity with our Christian brothers and sisters who are facing persecution even to the point of death.
We pray for our Christian brothers and sisters throughout the world who are suffering persecution. Many of our prayer focus comes from Voice of the Martyrs, which serves the families of persecuted Christians all over the world.
As Saul the persecutor of Christians was transformed into Paul, the Apostle of Christ, so we pray for abortion providers throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia to "Repent, for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand." - Matthew 3:2. We pray every week for a different abortion provider or organization in Virginia.
Pregnancy Resource CenterS
The services that dozens of Pregnancy Resource Centers throughout Virginia provide to families are making a life-saving difference for men, women, and their unborn children. We pray together every week for the ministries of these pregnancy resource centers which not only bless families here, but literally around the world.
We pray for members of the media, and pray for the success of truth and beauty through news, film, and other mediums.
Marriage is a blessing to both the husband and the wife. We pray every week that God will strengthen marriages throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.
From Deuteronomy 6 to Ephesians 6, the Bible calls upon parents to raise their children and to instruct them in the way of truth. We pray that parents will use their authority over their children to bless them.
Role & Jurisdiction of Government
First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
1 Timothy 2:1-4
This is where the name "Team Timothy" comes from. We are seeking to follow these instructions from 1 Timothy 2. Focusing primarily on the General Assembly of Virginia, but including the Judicial and Executive branches of government, we pray for all governing officials at the local, state, and federal levels.
We pray for different pastors by name every week, and pray for all pastors generally as they work as the shepherds of the flock of God among us. We pray that they are able to shepherd the flock of God that they have been given authority over in accordance with 1 Peter 5.
