September 2011 Prayer Calendar

This past summer, several of the children we serve around the world were affected by disasters such as floods and heavy rains.

As you pray for children, will you lift up their safety? Will you pray that they find peace in times of turmoil? And pray that they will continue to find comfort from the true Prince of Peace.

Verse of the Month

“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you.

Isaiah 54:10, NIV
