40 Days of Prayer - Day 4

Pray for the thousands of children who will lose a parent to HIV/AIDS and other illnesses today.  Think of children like Rimos and pray that they will have support around them so their inner pain will not endure.  Pray for there to be an adult who will continue to care for them.

"These children did not choose to be in these circumstances.  For a second, stop and think, why them and not you or me?  The least that we can do is pray.  Pray that they will experience God’s healing power through the support given by Care Workers who have chosen to sacrificially make time to be there and to love like they love their own children in their communities… through healing relationships that can only come about when Christ is the foundation of all." - Emily Dinhira

Emily Dinhira grew up in a rural village in eastern Zimbabwe under complex circumstances.  Partly because of her father who had two wives and did not believe in educating the girl child.  This was one of the reasons Emily wanted to do something with her own life.  Through her pastor and his wife an opportunity arose for her to study nursing in South Africa, where she was prepared for when she later became a care giver to her own family.  There she also met Hands at Work and became a full time Care Worker in the Masoyi community. Today, Emily coordinates Hands at Work’s training to equip local Care Workers to heal vulnerable children across Africa.
