Guideposts provides support, inspiration, and hope to people of all ages, from all walks of life. Our mission is to inspire people through the power of shared experiences to believe all things are possible through faith, hope, and prayer.
With support from friends like you, our Guideposts Outreach Ministry programs communicate positive, faith-filled principles to help people overcome life's obstacles. Your donations can have an immediate and positive impact on the sick, the elderly, the lonely, teens and children, men and women of the military, and others struggling with the challenges of daily life.
Guideposts is supported by a network of believers and donors who stand hand in hand with us as we reach out through our Ministries to those in urgent spiritual need. Charitable programs include the distribution of our complimentary publications, the OurPrayer network, our Military Outreach program, printed and digital content for those in Recovery, and our Comfort Kit program for children in hospitals.
We distribute millions of inspirational, complimentary publications including Guideposts magazine, books, and booklets to hospitals, nursing homes, shelters, prisons, military bases and VA medical centers, and other locations. Each Guideposts’ publication is filled with faith-building stories with the power to transform lives. Other free publications we distribute include Angels on Earth magazine, PLUS: The Power of Faith, and the Daily Guideposts devotional, as well as our new donor funded Daily Guideposts for Recovery.
The Power of Prayer
OurPrayer, Guideposts’ vibrant and far-reaching prayer community, is a daily, 24/7 effort, bringing help, hope, and comfort into people’s lives around the world. The OurPrayer Facebook page involves more than 1.6 million people in prayer efforts, joining together in a worldwide community, while more than 193,000 people follow Nuestra Oracion, the Spanish language version of OurPrayer Facebook. Our Guideposts’ website, Facebook page, Twitter feed, and the iPhone OurPrayer App offer people a variety of places to pray and be prayed for daily.
Saluting Our Military
Our Military Outreach distributes nearly one million copies of inspirational publications to our servicemen and women stationed at military bases around the world. We join hands with Chaplains from all branches of our nation's armed services to create and deliver exactly the spiritual help our brave troops and veterans need. Our publications are also at the bedsides of wounded and disabled military men and women in VA treatment centers nationwide.
Comforting Sick Children
Our Comfort Kits have brightened the lives of hundreds of thousands of children who are hospitalized or undergoing medical treatment. This program brings comfort and joy to sick and injured children and their caring families. For adult caregivers, we now publish Strength & Grace bi-monthly. This devotional magazine was especially created to help adult caregivers feel God’s love and encouragement so they can gain the courage, strength, and peace needed to meet each day. This publication, available by subscription, is distributed free to many assisted-living and rehabilitation centers along with cancer treatment centers in the Guideposts network.
Thanks to your generosity, Guideposts can reach out to people who are longing for God's presence in their lives. Our vision is a world filled with hope. Faith empowers our work to help build a positive world united in understanding, empathy, and compassion. In all we create, we are the reassuring voice of a trusted friend—a friend who makes you feel more hopeful and connected.
You can help us serve through a variety of charitable Outreach Programs, volunteer opportunities, and more.
