"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-assisted 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 Ghana Country Office about the children, families, church partners and staff in Ghana:
- Please pray for Ghana during the rainy season. Pray for God to restore what has been lost in the heavy flooding.
- Please pray for God's peace, harmony, love and understanding to flourish among the child development center workers, the parents and the children so that they may all come together to fight the lies of poverty.
- Please pray for God's mercy and intervention as many children are scheduled for surgeries because of a range of diseases. Pray for complete healing to cover the children and that they may come to know the provision of the Lord.
- Please pray for the hearts of parents. May the Lord teach them how to care for and encourage their children. Ask for the Lord to demonstrate His love through the parents.
