Provision, Protection and Educational Opportunities for Children

Statistic for YOU: Due to extreme poverty, parents are compelled to send their children to work as they are unable to feed their families. Recent studies estimate about 20% of children, between the ages of 5-14 have to work in order to survive. They are employed in drug-trafficking, sex work, and other hazardous labor. There is little or no opportunities for education (only about half of the population are literate).

“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them. -Mark 10:14-16

Father God, we are so grateful that Jesus has given us the right to become Your children. We are amazed at how You love us so abundantly and care for us with such tenderness. You tend Your flock like a shepherd: You gather the lambs in Your arms and carry them close to Your heart…(Isaiah 40:1).

We come to you on behalf of the children who live in the countries along the Hindu-Kush mountain range. Lord Jesus, would You gather these little ones in Your arms and bless them? You see every detail of their lives. We ask that You enter in to their poverty and distress by sending your people there who will teach the truth and love of the Father.  We also ask for strategic laborers who are gifted with the ability to create educational opportunities as well as businesses to equip them for a fruitful life.  We pray for peace within each family, and that You will give fathers and mothers creative ways to meet the needs of their children. May a “spirit of adoption” be poured out over the people of these lands, and may they receive the Kingdom of heaven into their hearts.

We praise You, God of heaven and earth, that is Your pleasure to reveal the truths of the Kingdom to children. What we ask, is what You want; so we thank You for answering our cry on behalf of the little ones. In Jesus name, Amen.

  5. Blessed Heavenly Father, I pray earnestly for the children of the Hindu-Kush area that they might be rescued from the miseries of child labor and exploitation! I pray, Dear Heavenly Father, that there might be help and education for their parents to learn wholesome and creative ways to provide for their families so that their little ones might be able to learn and grow in healthy ways to maturity before being driven out into the world and forced to work for survival. Please send laborers into this great harvest field, Dear Father, to provide for the parents to learn skills and trades that will enable them to provide for their families. Please send others who will be able to shelter and educate the children who have alread been victimized in the present harsh conditions. I pray for righteous government leadership to help open up options and alternatives for the parents to be able to provide for their children.

    Please protect theses dear little ones from those who seek to use them as property and steal their innocence. Make your presence so real to them and their parents, that
    their hearts leap for joy in their bodies. You gave each human the ability to know you
    exist so we are without excuse. Reveal to these dear people through your creation who
    you are and let them have supernatural understanding of that so that it gives them joyful hope and the peace that surpasses all understanding.
    In Jesus name, Thy kingdom come and Thy will be done, amen.

  11. Heavenly Father,

    It has been another blessed Sunday, a day to worship You. How lovely were the songs we sang about the cross. I pray that the people in the high places will receive the light that shines all knowledge of Jesus and what He did on the cross. I pray for Your intervention in the lives of the families. Draw them, Holy Spirit, to You, Three-in-One, God of the universe. Please let the darkness fall like an avalanche from the high places leaving only the light of Jesus. Bless the children of the area with educational opportunities. Please allow their families to have sources of income that do not require the using of their children in undesirable and vile manners. Please keep the children healthy and strong, constantly growing physically, emotionally and spiritually so they might lead their families to know You. Give them Christian influences and resources. You are good and love children. I trust in You, Father God, to take care of these precious young ones so they may live to glorify You just as You created them to do. In Jesus’ name, Amen

  12. Dearest Lord, may your creative genius flow into those souls who have the skills to become educational teachers to the people of the high places. Grace them with financial provision and ideas for work-study for the children of these people groups. Lord, nothing is too difficult for you!

  13. Heavenly Father,

    I agree with the prayer for today for the children in this particular area of the world. They need Your help this day to meet their young needs. I pray You will make a way for them to have a good childhood situation in which they will have educational opportunities. Please remove any from unwholesome situations that are detrimental to their lives. I pray for Christians to work with them sharing the love of Jesus. Please help their families to have enough resources, to be creative in making use of what they have, so that the children are not expected to bring in income to support the family. I pray in the name of Jesus, Amen

  14. Lord Jesus…Your love, Your compassion, Your mercy – these are realities that are manifested in countless ways. You know precisely how to care for these children. Enter into their circumstances to conquer the evil that is there, release them from all that stands in the way of their physical and spiritual nourishment. You are mighty to perfom these things. Thank you , Lord.

  15. I pray dear God to surround these families with your light & your love & protection. Help them dear Lord to find a way to survive. Help us as a nation to help one another instead of competing with one another. After all we are one nation under God.
