April is Child Abuse Awareness Month

“There is no greater sin than the abuse of power, especially when that abuse is directed at a child.”

 White House Proclamation on National Child Abuse Prevention Month, 2024

April Prayer

  • Pray for the minors that are currently in abusive situations. Pray God will rescue them.
  • Pray for the minors currently in programs. Pray God heals their physical, emotional, and spiritual pain.
  • Pray for wisdom, compassion, and patience for the staff and volunteers working with these minors.
  • Pray that God provides all the resources needed for shelters to provide qualified compassionate care.
