"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 Philippines Country Office about the children, families, church partners and staff in the Philippines.
- Please continue lifting up the many thousands of Compassion children, families and staff in the Philippines devastated by Typhoon Haiyan in November.
- 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.
- Please pray for the Lord's peace to powerfully surround and fill the hearts of children growing up in the midst of poverty. May they find love and hope in Jesus.
- Pray for the Philippine children whose parents must leave the country to find work.
