forty days of prayer for the children



i've got a favor to ask of all of you who read my blog. if you've read much at all here, you know that i'm involved in children's cup - working with AIDS orphans and OVC's in sfrica.

we've felt strongly over the past few weeks that we need to ask people for a united focus of prayer for these kids. if you read some of the stories on the children's cup website, you'll see what i mean. the kids we care for are in some of the hardest situations imaginable. one child was found as a baby after he was left by his mother to die - left in a toilet pit (like an outhouse). others are street kids. most are AIDS orphans. many have the disease themselves. all of them need hope.

so, i'm asking for as many of you as will do it to join us starting august 1for forty days of prayer for the children. we've got a website up where you can learn more and there's an online prayer guide where we'll post each day's focus in a blog format.

if you are willing to pray with us for these precious children, we'd like to include you in the list we've posted of people and churches who are praying. And we'd love it if you'd help us spread the word about it - we've created a special tag you can add to your blog or website.

here's the code to add if you want to link to it:

<a href="http://www.childrenscup.org/40days/40menu.htm"><img src="http://www.childrenscup.org/childrenscuptag.jpg"></a>

the link will look like this:



thanks for joining in - i am thoroughly convinced it will make a difference.
