Home, sweet home. The place we hang our hats and put up our feet, the place we gather in and retreat to, the roof over our heads. Home is an important concept to all of us and is an essential need in our lives. It provides safety, rest and shelter for us.
COVID-19 has created an increase of housing instability for the most vulnerable around the world. This need may be created by lack of available work due to shut downs, illness or even natural disasters. It is a desperate need for many to find a safe place for their families and it is even more difficult to achieve this with social distancing.
Join us in prayer for the many children and families who need a safe and secure place to call home. Pray for the Compassion centres in their communities as they continue to work hard at providing for the most pressing needs of children and their families.
1. Pray for those who have lost their homes due to lack of work. Pray that new opportunities will arise for them.
2. Pray for those who have lost their homes due to natural disasters. Pray that they will be able to find safe shelter during this time.
3. Pray for the Compassion staff as they seek to help children and families whose housing stability has been compromised due to COVID-19.
Lord, You are a safe place to run to. As we think of the children and families who need a safe place to call home, we ask that You provide for them. Shelter them in a time of great instability and provide help to those who need shelter. Grant these children a home where they feel safe and secure. Amen.
