"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 the 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.
Following are prayer requests from the Uganda Country Office about the children, families, church partners and staff in Uganda:
- Please pray for the children and families who were evicted from their homes and are now homeless. Pray for God to provide for their needs in this time of transition.
- Please pray for the several girls who live in unsafe areas. Pray for God to keep them safe and pray that they will turn to Him in time of need and come to know Him as protector.
- Pray that Compassion can continue to train parents to learn skills that will provide financial stability for their homes and safety for their children.
- Pray for the more than 12 million children in Africa who suffer from AIDS. Pray that Compassion staff will know how to meet the unique needs of these families.
