I hope this prayer request isn’t too political. If you don’t mind, I would appreciate your prayers in respect to this issue.
- For the prevention and end of child abuse, neglect and maltreatment, as well as bringing justice, peace, hope and healing for what has happened.
- For the child welfare and foster care systems to be safe, stable and nurturing places for those in need (but prevent its need whenever possible).
- For more children and youth from disadvantaged situations such as broken homes and poor communities to break the cycle and have more “happy endings.”
- For a neighboring child I’m been concerned about, for his safety, health and well-being (as well as for his soul and the souls of all at-risk children and youth).
