Prayers for Orphans – A blog by Yvonne
More than a billion people on our planet live in poverty, on less than $1.25 per day. Only half of them have electricity in their homes. About one-third of these impoverished people are children, age 12 or younger.
Heavenly Father, Lord of all, have mercy on all of us. Provide the orphans with everything they need for a happy life. Strengthen them, and give them love-filled families, safe and comfortable shelter, adequate health care, and excellent nutrition.
Dear Lord, please keep these children safe from dangers of all kinds. Let them live in a place where they are treated respectfully and loved unconditionally.
Help them learn to love because they are surrounded by love every day. Raise their self-esteem and let them know they are capable of succeeding in life in wonderful ways.
May the impoverished, struggling parents of this world be comforted and strengthened by your Holy Spirit’s guidance in their lives. Inspire them to find creative, innovative, effective ways to house, feed and educate their children.
Let the children and teenagers who live in poverty get the education they need to be able to survive in this world. Help them make a meaningful contribution to the betterment of this world.
I thank you, Lord, for making me aware of the needs of impoverished children. Please make me able to do whatever You wish for these children. Guide me in my efforts to help Your children.
This I ask, in Jesus’ name, Amen!
