Pray for Children in Poverty

  • Children in poverty face impossible obstacles every day. Some are big – disasters, abuse and sickness. But the small ones can feel just as hard to overcome – loneliness, fear and sadness.
  • In the darkness of poverty, faith can easily be lost. Pray that children in poverty will see the light of Jesus and that they will turn to God in prayer and find a faith that will sustain them.
  • Pray that God will infuse these children with hope that defies their current circumstances and that they will be surrounded by loving, caring people who can remind them daily, hourly even, that God has a plan and a purpose for each of their lives. 
  • Many children in poverty never hear the words “I love you.” Many seek love in dark places, not knowing that true love can only come from Jesus. Pray that the void in these children’s lives will be filled with the love of God, and that it will spread through their families and communities.
