Prayer is an integral part of our programs and work. Children attending Compassion-assisted child development centers at their local churches learn to pray as part of the activities. These sponsored children in Togo pray to ask God for direction, for someone to love them, for provision — for more of Him. How different (or similar) are your prayers?
