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.
Today this powerful ministry encompasses more than 30,000 people around the world.
Your participation in the Prayer Partner Network is an essential part of our ministry.
