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

For the past few months I’ve shared with you about the region of Latin America. I want to thank you for the prayers you’ve already lifted up for these beautiful people.

But I must tell you, I’ve especially been looking forward to this month. Because today, I get to write and share with you the triumphs and praises and victories coming out of Latin America!

When Edouard Lassegue, our Vice President of the Latin America and Caribbean Region, wrote to you recently, he mentioned that this region is experiencing progress in the economy and health care as well as declines in extreme poverty rates. But what does that look like?

It looks like the mothers and fathers whom you’ve prayed for who have now found work and are able to buy food and clothes for their children.

It looks like the boys and girls you pray for each month who suffer from medical conditions who are now being treated at local hospitals and clinics.

It looks like young men and women whom you pray for who are fighting for an education that will likely keep the next generation out of poverty.

It looks like you, praising God for all of the wonderful things He is doing every day in Latin America, through the resilient people of this region.

Thank you, as always, for praying daily for the children we serve around the world. Today, will you take an extra moment to thank God for the miracles happening in Latin America?
