October 17 is a day set aside by the UN to focus the world’s attention on the plight of the poor. The UN deemed it the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, and here at CGI, we thought it would be a great idea to merge prayer for our ministry with a day that calls attention to those we seek to serve: victims of poverty.
Prayer is a very powerful tool against oppression. CGI’s programs are designed to give opportunities that lift the poor out of their desperate situations, but prayer is the true catalyst for the miraculous changes we see. Our efforts can only go so far; our Creator is the one who breathes life into our work and gives it meaning.
Our vision for October 17 is to set aside 24 hours of focused prayer for CGI, praying for the programs, participants and staff. The first half of the day, prayer will take place in Cambodia and the second half will take place in the US. Below is a CGI Prayer Guide of specific needs you can pray for. It’s our hope that it will be a powerful day of prayer that results in “immeasurably more than all we can ask or imagine.”
Mark your calendars for October 17 and join us as we pray around the clock and around the world for CGI!
