Pray With Us
PRAYER FOR CHILDRENFather God, you are the giver of all we possess, the source of all of our blessings. We thank and praise you for the gift of children that you entrusted to us. Jesus Christ, give these children wisdom to understand what are taught in schools and be successful in their Education. Protect them from everything that endangers their lives and help them.
Orphans, children with disabilities and disadvantaged Children are often face with obstacles and difficulty in their daily life. Such as rejections and homelessness, rapes, sicknesses, hungers, lack of school fees, lack of parental love, tortures and mistreatments. Let’s pray, then, to God to be their providers, and enable them to love and be loved, have faith and hope, to forgive those who offend them.
PROVISIONWhen children live in hunger or most times, eat once a day and lack other basic needs such as clothing and Education, it is very hard for them to believe that God is the provider of everything. Pray that, uses Itinga Charity Education Foundation, Imara -Uganda Education Fund and other charitable organisations to reach out to these children so they will learn to trust that God is the provider of everything. Lord into your lovely hands, we dedicate all Orphans and poor children who are suffering worldwide, provide for them food that they need to grow, clothing and Education. “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus”. – Philippians 4:19 (NIV)
LOVEMany children in Uganda never hear the words “I love you’’. Most children are neglected, or even abused. Others have never seen their parents and are homeless. Pray that the void in these children’s lives will be filled with the love of God, and that it will spread through their families and communities. “We love because he first loved us.” — 1 John 4:19 (NIV) Almighty father, may these children be filled with your love always, and May they learn to love you God with all their hearts, souls and minds and love one another. “As there is no commandment more important than love” (Mathew 12:28-34)
FORGIVENESSUnforgiveness is like poison. And for suffering children around the world, there are so many opportunities for unforgiveness to creep in, such as, rejection, children who witness their parents being killed by someone, abuse or mistreatment by their parents and communities where they live. Because of these, they are over powered by unforgiveness, bitterness, fear and sadness. And many find it very hard to forgive those who hurt or take advantage of them. Pray, though, that these children will find forgiveness in their hearts to free them from bitterness and “receive forgiveness from God” (Luke 11: 4). Give them wisdom and discernment as they say “I forgive you.” Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. “Forgive as the Lord forgave you”. – Colossians 3:13 (NIV)
FAITHIn the event of suffering, faith and hope can easily be lost. How can a child learn to pray, to restore their hope, to believe when they see only brokenness, sufferings and rejections!?Pray that children will see the Light — that they will turn to God in prayers and find a faith that will sustain them. “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see”. — Hebrews 11:1 (NIV). Above all, Lord Jesus Christ, teach children to pray and obey your commandments. God you know all our needs; grant those that we couldn’t present to you. Father, with you all things are possible. Let your wills and plans be done on us for your word said in Jeremiah 29:11 that you alone know the plans you have for us. AMEN
