21 Days of Prayer - Day 6
Today in our 21 Days of Prayer leading to Easter we are praying for the 210 Compassion children in Peru that The Journey sponsors and for those trapped in poverty around the world and dealing with this disease.
Proverbs 31:8-9 says "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy."
Heavenly Father, today we come to you praying and speaking up for those who are trapped in poverty, especially as they deal with this virus. The reality that daily existence, food, provision is at the front of their minds and now they have to worry about a disease that they often will have little to no medical treatment for. We pray for their protection. We pray for provision. We pray for safety. And for us in the Journey family, we pray for those 210 precious children in Peru and their families. God, protect them. May they know your love and care. God, bless the Compassion staff as they go door to door to care for the needs of these families. We commit them to you and ask your blessing upon them. Keep them healthy and safe. In Jesus' name, Amen.
