"My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me."
Compassion-sponsored children have access to education, medical care, nutritious food and knowledge of the love of Jesus. They have been so blessed that many of them pray for their sponsors every day. Yet the children need prayer, too.
The following are prayer requests from the El Salvador Country Office about the children, families, church partners and staff in El Salvador:
- Please pray for the many children and families affected by Tropical Storm Matthew. Pray for God's protection as a new storm is predicted to hit where many Compassion-assisted children and their families live.
- Please pray for the many children and families affected by the flooding. Pray for the Lord to provide abundantly and to bring love, through His people, in the midst of this loss.
- Please pray for the fathers, mothers and caregivers who are facing unemployment in light of the economic crisis. May the Lord be faithful to provide jobs for them. May they witness the kindness and greatness of the Lord during this time.
- Please pray for our child development center workers, pastors and churches in violent areas. Pray the Lord's peace will surround them as they work on His behalf, and may His strength and mighty protection go with them in everything they do.
