Jesus stressed the importance of caring for orphans. Nearly 43 million children in the least-developed countries are orphans due to AIDS, armed conflicts, natural disasters, famine, abuse and other issues related to poverty.
Pray that God would bring peace to volatile regions.
Ask God to provide for children struggling after natural disasters.
Pray for God’s protection for children who are vulnerable to abuse.
Ask God to provide for child-headed households during famines.
Pray that God will provide peace and sustenance for the estimated 17.8 million children who have lost one or both parents to AIDS.
“Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.”
