5 Ways We Need Your Prayers For Easter

It’s April, which means our field staff around the world are hard at work preparing for Easter celebrations with our kids! Will you join us in praying for these important events? We know you agree with us that prayer is powerful when it comes to seeing lives changed!

Pray for Salvation

And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. - Acts 4:12

First and foremost, pray that our Easter parties would be a powerful tool for sharing the gospel. For any children who do not yet have a personal relationship with Jesus, this is an excellent opportunity to share how deeply He loves them. Our Easter parties are full of fun and joy, with singing, games, and a big feast. But most important is the gospel lesson! We know how powerful the gospel is, and trust that God will work through the Easter season to transform kids’ lives!

Pray for Siblings

And I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective for the full knowledge of every good thing that is in us for the sake of Christ. - Philemon 1:6

For the first time ever, siblings of our sponsored children will attend Easter celebrations too! It’s been a long-time goal to expand our program to impact whole families, rather than just those kids with active sponsorships. And through your support of our Life Center 2.0 pilot program in Kenya and Uganda, that is becoming a reality! Now, new kids can attend Life Center alongside their sponsored siblings, receiving the same discipleship. And that includes the Easter party! Let’s pray we see whole families coming to Christ as a result!

Pray for Teachers

We will not hide these truths from our children; we will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the LORD, about his power and his mighty wonders. - Psalm 78:4

We are blessed with amazing teachers who faithfully share God’s Word with the kids every week. Please keep them in your prayers as they prepare for this very special Life Center meeting. It is so important that each child understands the truth of Jesus’ death and resurrection - and what it means for them personally. With God’s blessings, we know each teacher will be successful and we’ll see great fruit from their efforts. 

Pray for the Logistics

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap a harvest, if we do not give up. - Galatians 6:9

With your support, our field staff put in an incredible amount of work to create successful Easter parties for our kids. There are gifts to deliver, meals to cook, lessons to prepare and so much more. They are traveling all over the country - by car, motorbike, bus and boat - just to get to each Life Center. Please pray for safety as they travel, clear heads as they juggle all the details, and stamina to get everything done on time.  

Pray for the Take-Home Devotional

I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. - Psalm 119:11

Each child will go home with a special Easter gift to help them remember what they learned. This year, your generosity is providing them with a devotional book. For kids who have few books of their own at home, these will certainly be treasured. And each one will point them back to Jesus and remind them how much He loves them.
