Dear Lord Jesus, so many children around the world have become orphaned or abandoned for so many different reasons, and have never known the love of a mother or father for them. Lord, I know that You care for all people. but You have a special heart for little children and orphans.
Watch over these children and young people, I pray. Comfort them in their trials, and provide for them when they are in need. Educate them when they are abandoned, protect them from those that would take advantage of their vulnerabilities and heal the physical and emotional hurt that so many have had to face in their young lives.
And Father, I ask that in Your grace, You would draw near to each one and bring them into a saving relationship with the Lord Jesus. Meet each one at their point of need and cover them with Your grace. In Jesus' name I pray,
