During the second weekend of November 2018, a unified effort by Christians and the Jewish community in 85 nations around the world will take place as a weekend of prayer for vulnerable children.
Since 2002, churches around the world have been uniting to pray for orphans and other vulnerable children on the second Sunday in November. Last year synagogues across the globe joined us by observing Orphan Shabbat and will do so again this year November 9-10.
With 400,000 children in US foster care and 15 million worldwide who’ve lost both parents, thousands of churches and synagogues will lift up their needs, celebrate God’s special love for orphaned and vulnerable children, and show participants what ordinary people can do to put that love into action. Let’s join our hearts with theirs in prayer to see these children reunited with their families or placed in loving forever families!
