    On 4th August, a massive explosion occurred in the port area of Beirut, Lebanon, killing over 100 people and injuring about 5,000 others. The shockwaves of the explosion have brought serious damage to roads and buildings, leaving some 300,000 people homeless. According to local assessments, as a result of the catastrophe, up to 500,000 people are in dire need of different forms of assistance, such as food, clothing and shelter. Lebanon has also seen the rate of COVID-19 infections drastically increase over the past few weeks.

    Please pray for the children and families affected by the devastating explosion in Beirut:

    • May God heal the injured people and the children affected by this traumatic experience, comfort the survivors, and protect the homeless and the people waiting for assistance.
    • Pray for the reconstruction of homes and restoration of community life, for Lord’s strength and presence with families, and for the children living a life again.
    • May God lead the work of World Vision and other humanitarian teams. May God bring in necessary resources to build a safe living environment and restore their hope for the future.
    • May God help brothers and sisters remember the plight of the children so that they would not be forgotten.

    COVID-19 has developed into a global pandemic. For many developing countries – where water supply is unstable, medical and hygiene equipment is on low supply and living conditions are basic – to adopt such preventive measures and hygiene management strategies are extra challenging. Things are even worse in refugee camps, where a shortage of resources means that their inhabitants are especially susceptible to be infected.

    Please pray for the vulnerable children and families affected by COVID-19:

    • Pray for full recovery for over a million of people around the world that are currently infected with the virus and for comfort and peace for the many people who have lost their loved ones.
    • Pray that the love of Jesus Christ will drive out fear from all people around the world. May God protect medical personnel on the frontline from contracting the virus.
    • Pray for wisdom for those working to find a vaccine. May God lead world leaders and medical units to bring hope and help to the suffering children and their families living under the threat of virus.
    • May God lead the work of World Vision and other agencies, bring in the necessary resources, and protect children and families.

    In August 2017, conflict broke out in Rakhine State, Myanmar. As of now, over 920,000 people, mostly Rohingyas, are stuck in the world’s largest refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh, not knowing when to return home. Though escaped from violence and persecution, the refugees not only have to overcome their traumatic experiences in the past, but also face threats like poverty, human trafficking, malnutrition and natural disasters, making them reliant on humanitarian assistance

    Please pray for the refugee children and families:

    • The rebuilding process of the conflict areas and sustained peace in Myanmar, that refugees will return home in a safe, voluntary and dignified manner.

  • Pray for the end of violence against children

Violence threatens their survival and health, robs them of their right to education, and causes short and long-term physical, emotional and social consequences.
