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 our Burkina Faso Country Office about the children, families, church partners and staff in Burkina Faso:
- Please pray for the children who are not able to attend the child development center. Some parents will not let their children come to the center because of religious differences. Pray for God to soften the hearts of the parents.
- Pray for God to open the eyes of people within each community, that they will cherish one another and that the interests of children will be taken seriously.
- Pray that sponsored children in our program learn to cling to God’s Word for comfort, strength and wisdom.
- Many sponsored children have a desire to help others because of the help they have received from their sponsors. Pray that these children find ways to be gracious, generous and merciful to the people around them.
