Specific Prayer Requests for Haiti

I cut and paste this directly from Compassion’s website. Sometimes it’s hard to even know what to pray. I was glad to read this and get some detailed directions. This was the most specific list I found so I thought I’d share it with you in case you find yourself praying the same thing I was…”Dear Lord, now what?” Of course, you can still give your financial support, too. You can also read this blog post from Shaun Groves for more information, like what’s typically found in a disaster relief kit (I thought that was interesting to see!).

The following are prayer requests from the Compassion International Haiti Country Office about the children, families, church partners and staff in Haiti:

Please partner with us as we pray for the most urgent needs in light of the recent Haiti earthquake:

  • Pray for our Compassion children and their families. Many of them have been unaccounted for and some may be separated from their loved ones. Pray they may be aware of the presence of the Lord in this time.

  • Pray for our Compassion staff in Haiti. Thus far, 40 of the 75 staff have been found. Please pray protection and the Lord’s provision over their lives. May He strengthen and grant wisdom to them as they contribute to the relief efforts in Port-au-Prince.

  • Currently, it is extremely difficult to get supplies to the victims. They are in desperate need of food and water. Please pray for the Lord to create a way for resources to get to them. May His miraculous provision prevail in this time.

  • Pray for Compassion employee Dan Woolley and contractor David Hames. They were at the Hotel Montana at the time of the quake and reported missing. Dan has been found and pulled from the rubble and David is still unaccounted for. Please pray for the families of both men, to be encouraged in the hope of the Lord. Pray fervently for Dan’s physical recovery as well as he and his family’s emotional state. Also, continue to pray for David’s safety and protection, that he might be found without harm and rescued quickly.

  • Please pray for the Lord’s peace and mighty arm of protection to be over the people of Haiti. May the Lord’s guidance breakthrough the chaos.

  • Please pray that the people of Haiti affected by this disaster will bond together in this time and serve one another. May they especially come together to help provide for the children.

  • Please pray that the Lord will position key people in the midst of this devastation to rise up and help bring order to the situation. Pray for the government as they continue overseeing rescue efforts and begin to put a plan together to rebuild Port-au-Prince.
