Child labor and exploitation, female genital mutilation (FGM), and human trafficking are among the greatest evils in the world. Pray with us for an end to all harm against children and for World Vision’s work to protect children.
In developing countries, children with disabilities are often unable to attend school, play outside, communicate, be included in the community, or get access to specialized resources and care. They can become isolated, lonely, and may have little hope for the future.
World Vision seeks to address these barriers by ensuring children have equal access to healthcare and educational opportunities, helping children have a voice in community affairs, and training their parents and community leaders to help eliminate stigma toward children with disabilities.
Join us as we pray for women and girls all around the world, that they may live the abundant life God intends for them. God sees His daughters as beautiful, strong, and worthy of respect. Around the world, however, many millions of women and girls are not respected.
The National Center on Family Homelessness reports that in 2013 1 in 30 children in the U.S. — a historic high — were living on the street, in homeless shelters or motels, or doubling up with other families. The number of homeless children increased 64 percent between 2010 and 2013 (1.6 million to 2.5 million). This month, join us as we pray for U.S. children and families living in poverty.
Pray for West Africa: Pray for political and economic stability, maternal and child health, and sponsored children.
