"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 Togo Country Office about the children, families, church partners and staff in Togo:
- Please pray for the health of the children. There has been an increase in sicknesses such as malaria, typhoid fever, worms and other diseases. Pray for the Lord to protect and heal these children.
- Please pray for parents to maintain their homes in peace and in unity. Pray the Lord will give them a desire to put away anger and violence and to have a heart of compassion toward their children and toward the child development center workers.
- Please pray for the children growing up in families where there is often not enough food to eat. Pray the Lord will provide for them in abundance and that they will come to know of His love.
- Please pray for the Lord to bless the child development centers. May these centers become known by the surrounding community as a place of love and opportunity.
