Contaminated drinking water causes more than 500,000 diarrheal deaths each year. Pray for healing among children sickened by contaminated water.

Pray that God will inspire Christians to donate time or money to building improved water sources.

Ask God to increase children’s access to safe drinking water and water treatment facilities.
