Children in institutional care are more likely to suffer from poor health, physical underdevelopment and deterioration in brain growth, developmental delay and emotional attachment disorders. Consequently, these children have reduced intellectual, social and behavioral abilities compared with those growing up in a family home (Save the Children, The Risk of Harm, 2009). When they do not have resources or accountability from someone who cares about them, many drop out of school.
- Pray for the great need for right relationship with God through Christ for these abandoned children in transitions.
- Pray for physical needs to be met through connections with local churches.
- Pray for follow-up from summer camp ministries to abandoned children in transition. May Romanian children and teenagers have eyes open to the Gospel and through this learn their true value.
- Pray for many lives to be transformed as children and adults learn to read the Bible for themselves and apply what it says.
“Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the LORD understand it completely” Proverbs 28:5
