Pray With Us

Prayers for Children | Compassion International

Prayer is arguably the most powerful and effective weapon we have in the battle against poverty. Without it, all our efforts to help the poor would be meaningless. Become one of Compassion's Prayer Partners and lift up the needs of Compassion-assisted children and staff to our Heavenly Father. Our Prayer Partners are a vital part of our ministry at Compassion.

As one of Compassion's Prayer Partners, you join a network of people committed to interceding on behalf of children in poverty all around the world. More than 20,000 people are praying daily for those the Bible calls "the least of these."

While it's true that a child who is hungry will have trouble hearing a spiritual message, just meeting the physical need and feeding the child is not enough. Our Prayer Partners add an integral spiritual dimension to our ministry.

Compassion's Prayer Partners have the opportunity to play one of the most life-changing roles in a child's life ... that of bringing their needs to the Lord. Could it be that God's tugging at your heart to join them? 

Pray With Us

Compassion's Prayer Ministry department began in 1995 under the leadership of the Rev. Ken Stafford, the father of Compassion President Emeritus, Dr. Wess Stafford.

"Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up."
  — Luke 18:1, NIV

Shortly after that department was established, the Prayer Partner Network was created to reach out and unite our sponsors in prayer for the needs of children in poverty.
