Dear Prayer Partner,

Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. — Psalm 119:105, NIV

Can you think of a time, particularly in your childhood, that you felt afraid of the dark? Maybe it was a poorly lit basement or a shadowy bedroom. Most parents, myself included, have checked under the bed for monsters and left a light burning overnight to bring a little bit of comfort to a scared child.

It’s no surprise, then, that poverty is so often described as a place of darkness. Because for the children we serve, those fears are real. Bad things do happen at night. Violence frequently, and unfortunately, arrives in their neighborhoods as soon as the sun sets.

But for more than 1.5 million Compassion-assisted children around the world, there is Light. At the churches where they attend Compassion activities, God’s Word is a source of hope and peace. It is a lamp they can use in times of darkness. His Word is a light on paths through, and out of, poverty.

This month, will you pray that, in times of darkness and fear, children will know the true source of Light? Pray that the Bible will be a source of comfort to them. When the children are at home and the darkness is drawing in, pray that their minds are filled not with fear, but with scripture – with God’s promises for His children.

Thank you, again, for your thoughtful prayers for the children we serve. You are pointing these precious children to the Light, and for that I am so thankful!

UPDATE: Last month we prayed for Alex in Kenya who went missing in May. We praise God because Alex has been found!

We praise God that Tithi, Surja and Sanjib in India have all been completely healed and are attending the child development center activities every day!

We praise God for the new babies born to Compassion Tanzania staff members Thomas and Elias!

We praise God for the implementation of new health and nutrition initiatives in Mexico that provide more specific and specialized care for our beneficiaries!

All children mentioned have sponsors and their monetary needs are supplied. In situations of disaster or dire need, local Compassion staff have stepped in to provide and arrange emergency assistance and support.
