December 2011 Prayer Calendar

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

December 2011 Prayer Calendar

You and I can celebrate this season of Advent, this time of the coming of Immanuel, with great joy — knowing that Jesus came and that God fulfilled His promise. But I would ask that you join me in praying for children who are waiting for something different.

Around the world, thousands of children in our program are waiting for a sponsor. Waiting for someone to speak words of joy and hope into their lives. Will you pray for these children in this season of waiting?

And as you read this month’s calendar, you will see many more prayers of waiting. Children waiting for healing. Parents waiting for jobs. And ultimately, a fallen world waiting for restoration. The time of waiting can be a difficult one. Pray for peace in this season and for reminders of God’s promises.

As always, thank you for your continued prayers for the children we serve. May you and yours have a blessed Christmas season!
