Prayer is powerful

For children living in poverty, there is often no safety net. Hunger, disease and disaster are constantly pressing in.

That’s why prayer matters so much.

When faced with the challenges posed by poverty, prayer is a lifeline. Every month, our staff around the world sends us prayer requests on behalf of the children we serve. The requests are for children who are sick, for families that are fractured, for the lost to be found — for miracles.

It is an honor to lift up those requests. And we want to invite you to join us in praying for children in poverty. As a member of Compassion’s Prayer Network, you will receive a monthly calendar filled with daily requests from around the world.

Pray that our children will live for Christ joyfully: 

“I say these things while I’m still in the world so that they will have the same joy that I have” (John 17:13b GW).


Pray that our children will grow strong spiritually: 

“I’m not asking you to take them out of the world, but to keep them safe from the evil one” (John 17:15 NLT, second edition).


Pray that our children will serve Christ effectively: 

“Make them ready for your service through your truth; your teaching is truth” (John 17:17 NCV).


Pray that our children will experience fellowship and relationship with good people: 

“My prayer . . . is that they will be of one heart and mind, just as you and I are, Father . . . and the world will believe you sent me” (John 17:21 TLB).


Pray that our children will bring others to Christ regularly: 

“I pray not only for them but also for those who believe in me because of their message” (John 17:20 GNT).


Pray that our children will grow holistically (cognitively, spiritually, social-emotionally and physically)

“And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.” (Colossians 1:9-10)


Give thanks to the Lord for the lives of our children!

O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever. (Psalm 136: 1 KJV)
