Prayers for Orphans

Dear Lord Jesus, so many children around the world have become orphaned or abandoned for so many different reasons and have never known the love of a mother or father for them – Lord we know that You care for all people – but have a special heart for little children and orphans –

Watch over these children and young people, we pray. Comfort them in their trials and provide for them when they are in need. Educate them when they are abandoned, protect them from those that would take advantage of their vulnerabilities and heal the physical and emotional hurt that so many have had to face in their young lives.

And Father we ask that in Your grace that You would draw near to each one and bring them into a saving relationship with the Lord Jesus – Meet each one at their point of need we pray and cover them with Your grace, in Jesus name we pray.


Loving Father there is nothing that You cannot do and no one that is outside of Your sphere of knowledge – Your word says that You defend the cause of widows and orphans – that you rescue the weak and needy and that You set the lonely in families.

We pray that You would work a mighty work in the lives of all those around the globe that are abandoned, orphaned or simply uncared for and provide for each of their needs according to Your riches in mercy and grace.

Raise up men, women and ministries that champion the cause of the defenseless and vulnerable. Be their rock of support, their fortress of safety – their shepherd and defender.


Protect the minds of those that have been exploited and bring them to a knowledge of Jesus and also to a place of refuge, where they may learn of Your Father-heart of love – for all those that are Your children.
