World Wide Day of Prayer

First Saturday of June every year
Saturday, June 3, 2000

There are 100 million street children. 35,000 children will die today of malnutrition and 1 million children become prostitutes every year!

Without prayer this will never change!

The World Wide Day of Prayer for Children at Risk is an annual day of prayer in response to the terrible plight of millions of "children at risk". All Christians are invited to participate in this prayer initiative. Our prayers will change situations and be a powerful force to bring child victims of war, famine, abuse, homelessness and rejection to put their hope in Jesus.
