Prayers for Orphans by Yvonne
Lord Jesus, today we pray for some of the ignored in our society – the widows, widowers, orphans and single parents. We pray that You will be the absent spouse, sibling, friend, mother and father for them all. Cover them with Your mantle of love when they are at their lowest. May Your Holy Spirit give them inner strength, courage and joy. May angels be at their service when they need them. Bless their families and friends too mightily, Lord. Forgive the ones who reject them and cause them suffering.
Loving heavenly Father – how our hearts go out to the children and young people who have been abandoned or orphaned and have become. ‘street kids’. Father we ask that you would look down in pity and mercy on so many who have been drawn into drugs, prostitution, child labor or criminal activities.
Lord we ask that You would extend Your arm of mercy to these youngsters and rescue many who have been drawn into this grim life-style. We pray that you would provide the help needed for many to be found and set free from the difficulties they face – and we pray for each one, that they may hear the gospel of grace and come to know You as the loving Saviour and caring Father.
We pray for the many ministries that have undertaken to care for orphaned and abandoned children – that You may be lifted up in their ministries.
