"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."
Compassion-sponsored children have access to educational opportunities, 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 Colombia Country Office about the children, families, church partners and staff in Colombia:
- Please pray for the thousands of families who have been displaced due to the recent geological fault in Colombia. Pray for God to provide shelter during this crisis.
- Please pray for the children and families whose homes have been damaged by flooding. Pray for God to use the local church to provide for and care for the community during this crisis.
- Pray for children whose parents are not believers of Jesus. May the joy and hope of the children encourage their parents to know Jesus.
- Pray that the lessons children learn at Compassion-assisted child development centers will result in fruit as the Lord encourages children and gives them dreams for their future.
