Hi!

I'm a writer for Compassion.

I'm looking for some friendly, helpful people who are part of Compassion's Prayer Network.

If you have been a member for a while (receiving your monthly prayer request calendar and devotional) would you mind sharing how it makes you feel to be making such an active, involved difference in the life of a precious child?

This testimonial will be used as part of an email campaign encouraging other sponsors to join us in prayer.

Thanks in advance for your bodaciousness!

I really enjoy getting the prayer request calendar because it helps me to remember to pray for whatever is going on in this children,teens, young adults lives
It also helps you put things into perspective and help you set priorities

Matthew 18:20 I think us getting the prayer calendar calls us to gather in Jesus name to bring encouragement and strength to those who need it more I think us coming together helps us strengthen a weak chain because they need to know we support them and we are showing them through action and through love

The prayer request calendar is a great view into the kinds of communities where Compassion works.  I rejoice when I read that a child has been given complicated surgery - because that child wouldn't have received it otherwise.  I grieve when I see requests for comfort for a child who has lost a parent or sibling, or the parents have abandoned him and an elderly relative in bad health is trying to care for him, or the parent has an addiction and home life is difficult and even scary.  It gets me out of my comfort zone of a sweet and orderly life, and I begin to understand what other people are dealing with in the world.  Prayer is work, but it's necessary work and I am glad to do it and help in intercession with the Lord.
