Feb 11, 2008 UPDATE:

Unfortunately, the plans to re-open did not materialize.

I wish it had, I really miss the kids and their families.

I again want to thank everyone for their support and prayer over the past years.  It was an exhausting, exhilarating, awesome (sometimes all at the same time) experience.  I was blessed beyond measure by being a part of it.

I want to appologize to all who have tried to contact me via the link below.  I have been WOEFULLY LAX in picking up email since I closed the site.  The last month or so before closing down, I was receiving several THOUSAND spam emails per day sometimes, and I simply burned out.  I had to wade through all of them to find the very few I needed to see.

And, some how, some way, I am receiving spam via the secure link on this page.  It is simply unbelieavable how spammers can do it.  If only there were some way to stop them.  But, there isn't.  So.........

Thanks for your continuing prayer support.  Who knows, God may have a way to continue KNP yet!!

May God bless each of you,
Grampa Jim

This is a moment I had hoped would never come. 

Kids need prayer has been 10+ years of laughter, tears, and love for all these precious children.  God has given me hundreds of Spiritual Grand Kids to take into my heart and love.

But, due to many circumstances, I am closing the ministry down.  This decision was not made lightly.  I have agonized over it for months.  I have cried, prayed, and spent sleepless nights making the decision.

I have made so many wonderful friends all over the world through it:
 North and South America, Asia, Africa, Europe, The Soviet States, Australia, Japan, just about every place but Antartica!  Many have become "pen" pals - All are friends I would never have known without the Kids Need Prayer ministry.

So many moms and dads have shared their children with us, to pray for and encourage.  It is them that this site was dedicated to. And I have come to love each and every one of them.  I have been blessed beyond measure by having known each of them.

I want to thank each of you who have been a part of the prayer and support system for these children.  Only God knows how much has been accomplished due to the prayers of the faithful.

Especially, I want to thank you parents who have placed your children into our lives, and our hearts, to pray for and support.  Our lives have been so blessed by them, and you.  I only pray that you have received much blessing and love from all the prayer partners who have supported the ministry.
Kids Need Prayer MAY at some point start up again.  I don't know - It depends on God's leading.  There may be someone that I could entrust the ministry to.  I just don't know.  I am in tears as I write this.  It is still painful to know that it is ending.

Please, continue to pray for all the kids, and me.

I want to thank those who have helped with the ministry:

     First, there is Baby Victoria

Baby Victoria, Aug 1996
and her parents Mike and Sarah, who invited me into their lives to take part in little Victoria's very short life.  She was the first of my many "spiritual grandbabies".  She was the little girl who started the whole thing in August 1996!
     Then there was "Nana Victoria" who pushed me kicking and screaming onto the web the first time in 1997 by setting up the first prayer chain (SAP Jim Kids) and telling me to get to work!!
  Debbie, who helped maintain the pages on the site for the kids.
  Aunt Edie, and Michelle, who took over the prayer chain and kept it going.
  Elizabeth, president of Children of the Promise ministry, who was such an encourager and who was the inspiration to begin Kids Need Prayer.  She has many of the same children on her site, and may add the other children from my site if the parents wish it.
     All of these wonderful people have had major rolls in Kids Need Prayer.  I am deeply indebted to each of them - and to each of you, my faithful prayer partners.
Thank you ALL again, and may God richly bless
each of you as you pray.

Your brother in Christ,
Grampa Jim
