40 Days of Prayer - Day 18

Day 18 - Teachers

This is why we work hard and continue to struggle, for our hope is in the living God, who is the Saviour of all people and particularly of all believers. Teach these things and insist that everyone learn them.  – 1 Timothy 4:10-11    

Vast numbers of the most vulnerable children in Africa have no access to even primary education. Orphaned children are often forced to abandon school and take up responsibilities in the home. As part of the Hands at Work vision in providing holistic care for each child, we fight for children to have access to education. Pray for the teachers who invest many hours a day into teaching our children. Ask God to give them grace and compassion as they serve as role models for the children. Pray they will have wisdom in assessing each child’s needs as they teach in a loving and encouraging way.
