"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 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 Ecuador Country Office about the children, families, church partners and staff in Ecuador:
- Please pray for the many children who have fallen ill over the past several months. Pray for provision and miraculous healing in their lives and the lives of their family members. May they come to know God as their healer in this time.
- Please pray for the many children who have become orphans due to abandonment or the death of their parents. Please ask the Lord to intervene and provide them with loving caregivers. Pray they will grow up to know and trust the love of the Lord in the midst of this loneliness.
- Please pray for God's protection for the children as the crime rate in Ecuador has grown. Pray for the Lord to transform hearts.
