Prayer Requests for Compassion Burkina Faso
"My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me."
 John 17:20-21

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 the Burkina Faso Country Office about the children, families, church partners and staff in Burkina Faso:

  • Pray for Compassion children and families whose homes were recently damaged or destroyed by heavy rains in, Burkina Faso. Compassion is providing emergency food and clothing.
  • Please pray for the many students who have exams coming up in the next few months. Pray for God to give them a passion for their studies. Pray that they will be equipped to succeed.   
  • 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.
