‘They never gave up… I really needed that.’

Yesterday, we shared Sarah’s story, who we’ve supported recently. Today, we invite you to join us in prayer for young people across the country who face similar issues to Sarah.

Faithful God,
thank you when children can say,
‘They never gave up…
I really needed that.’
Thank you God that you never give up on us,
we really need that.

For children whose families break,
and fostering fails to keep them from running away,
We ask that you would be there,
through us, friends and The Children's Society.
We pray that there would be justice
for people who take advantage of vulnerable children.

Most studies in the last 30 years have shown a straightforward, strong and positive correlation between personal participation in religious activity, like prayer, and well-being, most notably in the area of mental health. You can read more about this in Theo's recent summary of 139 academic studies into religion, well-being and mental health.
