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 in Bolivia

I’m so happy that you were able to hear from Edouard Lassegue, our Vice President of the Latin America and Caribbean Region, last month!

In his letter, Edouard told you that "the troubles of Latin America … will not fade by just good intentions." This is the truth. So this month, I would like to ask you to pray for some people who, I believe, have the potential to change Latin America. Pray the words of Jeremiah over them, so they will remember that God “has plans to prosper you ... plans to give you hope and a future."

First, will you pray for the churches of Latin America, specifically for Compassion’s church partners? God calls the church to be His hands and feet, and they will truly be the agents of change in this region. Please pray for the pastors, the deacons, the Sunday school teachers – each one uniquely equipped to serve the poor.

Will you also pray for the directors, tutors and the rest of the staff and volunteers at Compassion’s child development centers? These men and women work tirelessly to show children in poverty that they are loved.

Finally, will you pray for the children in our program in Latin America, both current and graduates? We believe that each Compassion-assisted child is being trained up to have an impact in their homes, their communities and their countries.

I can’t wait to share some of the triumphs of Latin America in next month’s letter – all made possible because of the work happening today and strengthened by your faithful prayers!
