Prayer Suggestion #6

Today, we begin our feast in prayer for the children and their families living in poverty. I plan to have ideas throughout the day to aid in your prayers for children living in poverty. If you are stuck not knowing how to pray for children and their families for 20 minutes or longer for some, you are welcome to stop by and get some ideas. They will be simple and not meant to take away from how the holy spirit guides you through your prayer.

There are many children who have been blessed by sponsorship through organizations like Compassion International and World Vision. I have been able to read success stories of children who have been given hope, food, and education through Compassion and have grown into young people serving others who's circumstances were all too familiar.

But there are many children waiting to be sponsored. They have been given a glimpse of what they can have once they are sponsored. I imagine their families wait for the day that they hear that their child has a sponsor. Sometimes it can be a long wait. It's not unheard of that children wait longer than 6 months. The anticipation is hard at times. In those moments that you cannot feed your child, I imagine their prayers are for a sponsor.

Please pray for these families in waiting. Prayer for the children who look beyond their houses and see excited children running to the Compassion project as they wait for their day to come.

Consider giving to the Unsponsored Children's Fund.

Sponsor a child online through Compassion's Christian child sponsorship ministry. Search for a child by age, gender, country, birthday, special needs and more.
