Prayer Calendar - Compassion International

When you join Compassion International's Prayer Partner Network, you will receive a monthly prayer calendar via e-mail at the end of each month.

The monthly prayer calendar will help you pray consistently for "the least of these." Please take a few minutes each day to pray for a child and commit the child's need to our loving Father.

A Message From Santiago "Jimmy" Mellado
Santiago "Jimmy" Mellado with a group of Bolivian children

Every single day more than 1,200 children worldwide fall victim to a disease that most of us in America have barely heard of. Because when a disease is eliminated from your own view, it’s easy to forget it exists — and to forget to pray for the nameless, faceless victims.

But as a prayer partner, we want to help you remember. That’s why, this month, we are highlighting World Malaria Day on April 25 to bring to light this horrible disease that takes the lives of so many people each year. To bring to light the names and faces — to bring dignity and hope to those who face the reality of malaria each day.

There are so many ways you can pray for malaria victims. You can pray for good health and healing for children who are, this very day, suffering with malaria. For peace and resilience for the parents who are working desperately to nurse their children back to health with very limited resources. For stamina for the often-overworked doctors and nurses caring for those who have fallen ill. For wisdom for the Compassion staff who are educating families on malaria prevention.

I can’t thank you enough for your prayers. I hope you find the same comfort that I do in knowing that the Great Physician hears our prayers for healing and hope.

Thank you again for all you do!

In Christ,
