This is the final list of prayer suggestions for children in poverty from Compassion International. If you want to refer to these lists of prayer suggestions, go to the Praying for Children in Poverty category in the Category List at the right of my blog. Join me in praying for:
Day 29: U.S. Churches – Churches in the United States are some of the most resourced in the world. Most members are looking for a way to make a difference in the lives of others as they live out their faith.
Day 30: Valuable Training – Children in the developing world are brimming with potential. Those who learn vocational skills such as sewing or motor repair can earn steady incomes as adults.
This concludes our 30 days of praying for children in poverty. But please don’t forget the children!

“For I was hungry, while you had all you needed. I was thirsty, but you drank bottled water. I was a stranger, and you wanted me deported. I needed clothes, but you needed more clothes. I was sick, and you pointed out the behaviors that led to my sickness. I was in prison, and you said I was getting what I deserved.” (RESV – Richard E. Stearns Version in The Hole in Our Gospel)

“If the Triune God is already in mission, then I need to see the worlds in which I regularly walk as the arenas of the Spirit–places imbued with the presence of God. . . . I started to change the way I inhabited places: work, the coffee shop, the train on the way to work, a neighborhood conversation, a school board committee meeting, the food pantry, and of course my own family life. I started to pay attention to things I normally would miss. I began to listen for God. I tried not to make God into an evangelism project that I had to do a few hours a week. I simply paid attention to my existing routine and daily tasks. I looked for what God was doing in all the relationships and interactions of my life.” (By David Fick in Prodigal Christianity)
