I’m going to ask a big favor of you this week because I know y’all are awesome and up for the challenge.

I’m participating in Compassion’s Blog Month. The goal is to find sponsors for 3,108 children this month.

I’m asking you to do two things:

  1. Go HERE and spend some time praying for the child that appears on the screen and Compassion in general through the prayer guide below.
  2. If you are a blogger, prayerfully consider participating in Compassion’s Blog Month. Register HERE. (PS There are awesome prizes for each “assignment” you complete!)
Prayer Guide:
  1. Pray by name for the salvation and continued spiritual growth of the child on the screen.
  2. Pray by name for the child to be blessed with a sponsor. Soon.
  3. Pray for the child’s family and community–for spiritual, economic, and physical needs to be met in a sustainable way.
  4. Pray for the many staff at Compassion that work abroad and at home to make this program possible.
  5. Pray for guidance in how you can support this ministry: (prayer, sponsorship, advocate)

Come back and leave a comment with the first name of the child you prayed for.
Let’s see how many kiddos we can cover in prayer!

  1. I am joining the blog for Compassion month, thanks to your post! Thank you for sharing and linking up girly! :) Blessings!

  2. Excellent post Mary Beth! I prayed for Kermeline. Thanks for all you do here and what you’re doing to help Compassion!

  3. Wonderful ministry. You are a blessing to all who you touch with your efforts, actions and words.

  4. Sweet prayers, Mary Beth, and what a wonderful ministry. I’m doing my Compassion post on Monday, and planning to visit Compassion kids when I visit Belize next month!

  5. That’s actually what held us back for awhile. We wanted to be sure it was a solid organization. Compassion is top of the line!

  6. Great partnering with you and other Compassion Bloggers. Love seeing all the passion. My little girl is in Peru and I cannot wait for my first letter from her. So excited about this journey, relationship and opportunity to grow with her. Thanks for the hospitality over here at the your sweet place.

  7. Hi Mary Beth! I just prayed for Saray in Columbia. What a cute little girl. We have sponsored Shirley from Honduras through Compassion for almost six years now. It’s exciting to see her grow!

  8. So exciting to see how you are writing in community with such a great ministry. We sponsor children through Compassion, as well as some other ministries. And I’m always amazed at the work done through Compassion. Thank you for sharing.

    Rina. Great post today. Compassion is a wonderful ministry. Blessings.

  10. My daughter and I just prayed for Carlili from Guatemala! We absolutely love Compassion and what they are doing! Thanks for the post :-)

  11. Today, I’m the one blogging about when things don’t go according to MY plan… might have to go back and read your post from last week! :) Thanks for hosting the link up, friend!

  12. MomsMustardSeeds says:

    So blessed by the many who step out in faith and share God’s word…and encourage others to help those in need!!! Blessed by you….in many ways.

  13. Heather Windeler says:

    Yay! Bloggers for Compassion unite! :) I prayed for Kadidjatou and Hilary from Togo and Tanzania. Great post and call for prayer Mary Beth. :)I hope/pray that Compassion’s goal is blown out of the water and it ends up with double their original #. Child sponsorship is an amazing gift! :)

  14. This is an exciting month. I am also a Compassion blogger and Advocate. My post today is also a Compassion post ;) we sponsor 2 kids and I cannot express how much Compassion means to me! I love this ministry!

  15. says:

    I’m a Compassion blogger too! I love their ministry to children in poverty. And it’s fun that we get to help out in some small way:)

    • It is fun! I love that we actually get to interact through exchanging letters with our sponsored child. Make me feel more connected. We hope to meet him some day.
