Pray for the most vulnerable

"The theme of this year's Day of the African Child is "Protecting Children's Rights". Join me in taking a couple of minutes to:

  • Remember and pray for not just all the children in Africa, but especially those in poverty and vulnerable situations. 
  • Reconsider the wonderful gift that each child is – every child deserving of our transforming love!
  • Remember there is sacredness to the life of an individual child, and frankly, I think our ministry only makes sense when we do not lose sight of the absolute value of every single child.”

"People were also bringing babies to Jesus for him to place his hands on them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them. But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”

Luke 18:15-16
