Universal Children’s Day (November 20)
Presbyterian World Service & Development is committed to protecting the rights of children, including the right to food that helps them grow and thrive. A lack of food threatened the life of one-year-old Kai when violent conflict near their village forced his family to flee their home in South Sudan. After they’d walked for days, Kai was showing signs of severe acute malnutrition. Fortunately, when they arrived at a UN protection camp, the little boy was admitted to a feeding centre that is part of a PWS&D-supported nutrition treatment program with Canadian Foodgrains Bank. After two months Kai was discharged, having grown healthier, stronger and better able to face each day while waiting for peace to be restored in South Sudan.
PWS&D protects the rights of children
We Pray For
Heavenly Father, as fall approaches and days grow shorter, may we find beauty in the ever changing colors of the season. As young and old settle back into their fall schedules of work, school and other activities after the relaxing days of summer, be with those who are beginning new stages in their lives and also with those who are returning to familiar places. We pray for the ministries of your church as our small groups start back up in the weeks ahead. We also keep in mind those in our communities who are hurting for whatever reason. We especially pray for David Bertram, Heather Ford, Louise Weeks, David MacIntyre, Eddy Dykerman, and Aneila River- Watts. May the words of our mouths and the actions of our hands all bring Glory, Honour and Praise unto Christ. Amen
