A Prayer for Compassion
“If you spend yourselves on behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.” (Isaiah 58:10, NIV)
Heavenly Father, thank you for being a God who upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry (Psalm 146:7). We pray for all Compassion children and their families. Provide for their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Continue to grow these children in the knowledge of your love and bring them into a saving relationship with your son, Jesus Christ. Instill in them a resilient hope that comes from a trust in your good plan for their lives (Jeremiah 29:11).
Lord, we pray for the Compassion field staff, church partners, pastors and volunteers who have dedicated their lives to serving children in poverty. Psalm 41:1 (NIV) tells us, “Blessed are those who have regard for the weak; the Lord delivers him in times of trouble.” Protect those who minister in the most dangerous environments. Sustain these servants with your strength and give them peace as they work every day to meet the needs of children in the most challenging situations.

A Prayer of Thanksgiving
“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:18, NIV)
Heavenly Father, thank you for our freedom here in the United States. Thank you for the resources and opportunities that you have blessed us with in this country.
As we thank you for our abundance of food, we remember the hungry.
As we thank you for health, we remember the sick and those without access to medical care.
As we thank you for our friends and families, we remember those who have been abandoned.
As we thank you for our freedom, we remember the enslaved.
Allow these blessings to stir our hearts to service, that we would join in your work of reconciling all things to yourself through Jesus Christ (Colossians 1:15-20). Thank you for the gift of Jesus, who has given us the ultimate freedom from sin and death.
