Pray for the education of children
As children in many countries begin a new school year, World Vision’s Hope Prayer Team invites us to join together and pray that young people everywhere will gain the education, wisdom, and discernment they need to reach the fullness of life God intends for each of them.
Thank God for the progress in school enrollment worldwide.
According to UNESCO’s 2011 Education for All Global Monitoring Report, the number of primary school-age children not in school worldwide has dropped 39 million since 1999. Still, Ask God for His continued blessing on efforts to give the world’s children an opportunity for formal education.
Dear Lord, we praise You that millions more children are getting an education now than a decade ago. We ask that You bless those who are making this happen. Continue to help those involved to build momentum around the world so every child has the opportunity to go to school.
