Our Father in heaven, may your name
be honoured,
May your kingdom come,
may your will be done on earth as it
is heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins, as we forgive
those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but
deliver us from evil.

Pray for children who
have to live on the streets
Many children are living on the streets for a
lot of reasons. For example:
Their parents don’t have enough money to
feed them
Some children are scared to go home because
their parents hit them
When children live on the streets, they might
be forced to do a lot of bad things like steal
so they can buy food to eat
Please pray for children who live on the
streets. Pray that God will take care of
them and give them good homes to live in.
Pray for children who are
being forced to work
In some countries people kidnap children
and sell them for money. Children are
forced to work and can’t play or go to
Children who are sold, tricked or
kidnapped are made to work really hard
or are harmed by other adults
More and more children every year are
being harmed in this way
Please pray that God will protect children
from being sold, kidnapped or tricked. Also
pray that other children might be rescued
from these situations.
Pray for children
who are orphaned
There are many children in the world who
don’t have a mum or dad
Children lose their parents because their
parents get really sick or hurt
Some children have to stop going to
school to take care of their little brothers
and sisters
Please pray that God will watch over
children who do not have parents. Pray that
He will bring people to love them and take
care of them.
Choose one of these prayer activities to pray for children:
Shout out as many names and characteristics of God as you can think of and
have one person in your group write them down on a big piece of paper.
Then think about what each of these could mean to a child who is suffering
Put pictures of the following things in different parts of the room:
- Food (the need for food)
- A school building (the need to learn)
- A house (the need for a place to call home)
- A family (the need for loving families)
Visit each part of the room and pray for children who do not have the things
that these items represent
Using a world map or globe, choose a country and pray for children in that
