Our Ministry

Praise & Pray Ministries is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that provides care packages to families with babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).  Praise & Pray Ministries was started in 2009 by Jared and Lacy Taylor.  After the loss of their premature daughter Alayna in May of 2009, Jared and Lacy decided that it was their calling to minister to families that were enduring similar circumstances in the neonatal intensive care units.  On what would have been Alayna’s first birthday on January 31, 2010 Praise & Pray Ministries delivered the first care package to the NICU at Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System in Spartanburg, South Carolina.  Please browse this website to learn more about the ministry as well as the story of Alayna Taylor.  May God Bless You!

Our Mission

Our mission at Praise & Pray Ministries is to offer hope to parents of premature babies in the neonatal intensive care unit. We provide packages of useful items to these parents such as lotions, bibs, and hand sanitizer. Among other items, each package includes a letter explaining the experiences that led us to begin this ministry. Bibles are also available to these families upon request.  We hope that in this most difficult time that these families will see that someone cares for them and that through our ministry they might come to feel the love of Jesus Christ.

Our Hope

It is our prayer that you will partner with us in ministering to these families in this time of uncertainty. Please visit our Opportunities page to learn how you can get involved.

Our Story

The NICU is one of those places where until you have a child in there or know someone who does, you really have no idea that it even exists. We found out very quickly that it is a very real place with very real people. Visit our About page to read how one precious baby named Alayna touched the lives of so many during her 99-day stay in the NICU and inspired us to begin this ministry.

Our Events

We have several events every year that we would love for you to be a part of.  Our annual golf tournament is our largest fundraiser and we also have our 99 Days of Prayer event that runs from January 31st to May 9th each year. If you’re interested in partcipating in any of our events or would just like to help in any way, we would love to have you.  Click All Events at the bottom right of this page or contact us if you would like to help in any way.

Our 2019 Praise & Pray Ministries Golf Tournament was a great success. Thanks to all the golfers, sponsors, volunteers, and families that came out to support us and all NICU families. To view a video of our NICU family presentation this year, click the link below…
