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

It’s been so wonderful praying together with you these past few months for the people of Africa. Thank you for joining us in lifting up the requests of these amazing, resilient people. Your prayers are being answered!

And this month, we get the great joy of celebrating the praises flowing out of Africa!

Sidney Muisyo, vice president of the Africa Region, recently shared some of the amazing things happening in his home continent. He wrote that “hope continues to rise and Africa in many ways is no longer the ‘hopeless continent.’” Many African countries, like Kenya and Rwanda, have seen tremendous strides in technology and business advances. Sidney also shared that Ethiopia, once known for drought and famine, now has one of the fastest growing economies in the world.

But what makes me most excited for the people of Africa is the growth of the local church there. These churches are Compassion’s front-line ministry partners. Each child we serve in Africa comes to their local church for help. So as the churches of Africa grow, so does our capacity to release children from poverty!

This month, will you pray for the pastors of our partner churches that their passion for serving the poor will be ignited and spread through their congregation?

Will you pray for the hundreds of church members who serve as volunteers at many of our centers? The tutors and cooks, especially, work long hours ministering to our children. Will you pray for stamina and a heart filled with gentleness as they serve?

Thank you for praying daily for the children we serve around the world. Will you take an extra moment to thank God for the amazing work He is doing in Africa?
