Orphans of the Nations

Join us as we cry out for mercy & compassion on the orphans of the world. Let’s also pray for those who though their families may be alive, they are challenged by the same emotions and challenges that face orphans.

Prayer 1

“Lord, You have heard the desire of the humble; You will prepare the heart; You will cause Your ear to hear, to do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may oppress no more.  Psalm 10:17-18

Pray the Lord who is gracious to the humble will hear the cries of the orphan and the oppressed. Pray the Lord will bring justice to the fatherless and those in human trafficking and that man will not oppress them anymore.

Prayer 2

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn.  Isaiah 61:1-2

Pray for victims of these crimes to be set free from oppression, abuse and exploitation. Pray for the Lord to heal their broken hearts, to bring freedom from captivity, to release those who have been imprisoned and to bring salvation and comfort to all.

Prayer 3

I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely He will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.  Psalm 91:2-3

Pray for the Lord to be a refuge to modern day slaves (who are mostly women and children), delivering them from the snare of the devil.

Prayer 4

When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to evildoersProverbs 21:15

Pray for governments to fight for the orphan and against human trafficking, cooperate with other nations to bring halt to this illegal and destructive crime against humanity.

Prayer 5

Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.   Acts 3:19

Pray for the Church to take a stand against slavery, the orphan and human trafficking. Ask the Lord to give Christians His heart for those who are being exploited. Pray for the Lord to raise up anointed and effective ministries to deliver and restore those caught in these traps.
