844 million people around the world don’t have access to clean water; that’s more than 1 of every 10 people around the world. Join us in prayer for children and families who are thirsty and lack this most basic necessity.

Globally, girls in developing countries often miss school while on their periods. By missing class for up to a week each month, it often leads to them dropping out altogether.

Our world is full of hurting families and nations torn apart. One-third of the world’s population live in countries with conflict, violence, or fragile internal systems. Pray with us for people living in fragile contexts and conflict zones.
