World Day of Prayer for Children at Risk
This is a special day of prayer scheduled annually on the last Sabbath of May.
Thousands of children around the world are at risk. Many face abuse, neglect, trafficking to other countries, hurt and much more. Children at risk need to be protected and helped so that they can use their God-given talents to their fullest. They need our prayers.
Let’s empower the children, teenagers, old and young in our churches to pray for these at-risk children. Involve children in prayer as they learn to focus on ways to relieve the plight of these children at risk.
Each year a special prayer package is developed by the VIVA organization that organizes a special prayer weekend for children at risk. This resource includes activity ideas, worship and prayer events for children, teenagers, and adults. It is also translated into many languages and can be downloaded from their website at www.worldweekendofprayer.com

This Sabbath is a fantastic opportunity for your church to make a special effort to involve your children in creating intergenerational connections and memory events. Help your kids participate and serve in church through serving. More ideas will be posted closer to the time. In the mean time contact us with any of your questions.

Family & Children’s Week of Prayer
In September, a week is set aside for global family and children’s week of prayer. During this week we want to encourage you and your families to pray as a family. Get creative, bring back family meal times, family conversation, activities in the great outdoors and create some lifelong memories with your family in a manner that is culturally appropriate.
Closer to the time please visit the Record website to download the week of prayer readings. We will also be developing some resources which will be available for families and Churches to use for this special week. Keep an eye out closer to the date for these on our Facebook page and here.
