Kids Prayers

kids prayers

Kids’ prayers are a great way to help children think beyond themselves. Encourage children to pray for others. If your family sponsors a child through Compassion, encourage your child to pray daily for him or her.

  • Thank God for the sponsored child and her family.
  • Thank God for sending Jesus to die for her.
  • Pray for God to give the child food to eat and clean water to drink.
  • Pray for God to draw the child to salvation.
  • Pray for God to help the child make wise choices.

“I’m glad You are my Savior and you help me make good choices. You care about me and are right here waiting for me to watch You lead the way! Please help me grow in many ways and help me listen to Your guidance. I thank you for my sponsored child and her family. Thank you for sending Jesus to die for her. I pray that you will provide food for her to eat and clean water for her to drink. I pray she will come to know Jesus and make wise choices. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
