40 Days of Prayer, day 3

Day 3: "Today, ask God that of the 2 billion Christians in the world, 7% would show hope to a single orphan, looking after the child in their distress.  Ask the Lord to convict the church around the world that if we did this, there would effectively be no more orphans.  Ask the Lord to show each of His followers that we can each do something."

There are so many ways to look after an orphan.  Every family can and should do something; whether it is adoption, fostering, mentoring, donating to organizations caring for orphans, visiting orphans to provide hope, sponsoring an orphan to build a relationship, or supporting families that have taken in orphans.  These simple yet profound acts can change an orphans life.
