Your Prayers are Powerful!

Your sponsorship provides resources for efforts in health, nutrition, education, and community development that benefits your sponsored child — but nothing we do makes a difference without God’s involvement and blessing! Your prayers for your sponsored child and their community’s specific needs bring about transformational changes! Please join us in prayer and praise for what God is doing in your sponsored child’s life and in their community.


For your sponsored child to have a spirit of faith, love, and a sound mind and not fear (2 Tim 1:7).



For your sponsored child to have a profound hope for the future, assurance that God will complete the good work He has started (Phil 1:6).



For your sponsored child to experience God’s love – through FH staff, in their home and in their community (2 Thess 3:5).

Pray with us now:

Heavenly Father, I know you watch over my sponsored child. You know their needs intimately. All resources belong to you, and I ask you to please meet those needs as only You can.

I pray for Your protection over them and their family. And that You will help them to grow closer to You and truly experience Your love for them, through their family, friends, and through me as their sponsor.

Lord, please give my sponsored child hope – the kind of hope that can only be found in You. Give them peace that passes understanding, to look confidently to their future and pursue the plans You have for their life.

Thank you God for this child made in Your image. In Your holy name I pray. Amen.
