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 excited to begin our focused time of praying for Asia for the remainder of 2018! I can’t wait to walk with you through the prayer needs and praises of this diverse region, which is home to three-fifths of the world’s population – and 250,000 Compassion-assisted children!

On my travels to Asia, I am struck by both the rich culture and the unique challenges faced by the people who live there.

South Asia has the world’s highest number of malnourished children, and our staff often struggle to ensure that children are healthy and strong. Will you pray for the health of these children and for resources for our church partners?

Another challenge facing many children, especially those living close to borders, is the threat of bonded labor and human trafficking. I would ask you to begin praying this month for those children who are vulnerable and at risk of exploitation.

But I would also ask you to begin thinking about the work God is already doing in Asia. Next month, you’ll hear from Silas Balraj, Vice President of the Asia region. I know he will bring a unique, fresh perspective on Asia, and inspire your continued prayers.

I can’t wait to journey with you as we pray together for Asia. What a unique privilege it is for us to lift up this faraway land to the God who sees us all!
