11-2011 Prayer Calendar

Participation in the Prayer Partner Network is an essential part of Compassion's ministry for children and families in poverty.

November 2011 Prayer Calendar

This month, will you pray that thankfulness will continue to overflow in the hearts of the children and families who are part of Compassion? Pray for moments in which they will see God’s grace. And let’s pray for each other. That each of our lives will be filled with a spirit of gratitude, and that each day will be filled with moments of thankfulness.

Thank you, as always, for your commitment to lifting up millions of children in your prayers this month. You are making a difference. And we are thankful.

Verse of the Month

Save us, LORD our God, and gather us from the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name and glory in your praise. Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Let all the people say, “Amen!” Praise the LORD.

— Psalm 106:47–48, NIV
