Russia: Campaign “Prayer for orphans during 365 days”
The association “Russian without orphans” as a continuation of the initiative “Day of Prayer for orphans” which was held on November 9, 2014, launched a campaign “Prayer for orphans during 365 days.” It will serve as a preparation for the “Day of Prayer for orphans” in 2015, reports The Christian Telegraph.
According to the statistics, 44 000 children in 2013 found a family, but there are still 90 000 orphans.
Today the Church in many parts of the world is ready to assume responsibility for orphaned children. We are committed to protect children who are without family to care for them and support in a difficult situation, says the press release of the Association.
During the preparation for the “Day of Prayer for orphans” (2014), they constantly heard stories from the clergy and parishioners of different churches on the results of prayer for orphans. Vladivostok couple adopted a boy with the disease “cleft lip,” in Moscow was adopted a girl with no fingers on one hand. In Penza, one family took into their family four children immediately. In Pskov, several families also decided to take a child in their family, etc. You can hear such stories in almost every church in which there are adopted children.
“Prayer for orphans during 365 days” is a daily prayer of believers for orphans. The action itself is like a prayer chain.
With on-line calendar on the website denmolitvy.rf, you can choose the prayer time, put a mark of your church or just on your prayer card. It may be a week, a day, or a prayer in small Bible study groups, or Sunday worship, or individual prayer.
