Abandoned Wives

Pray for women who married as children and have been abandoned, divorced or widowed. Pray for their provision, support and encouragement as they raise their young families.

Agencies to Work Together

Pray for the continuing cooperation of global, regional, national and local governmental agencies to work toward the elimination of child, early and forced marriages. (Dan. 2:21)

Access to Women of Hope Programs

This month we are praying for child brides. Join our teammates at ERF in Wetzlar, Germany as they pray.

Pray for child brides to have access to Women of Hope programs to encourage them spiritually and provide practical wisdom in raising their families.

God to Move Cultures

Pray for God to move in the hearts and minds of communities and cultures to change their beliefs and practices regarding child marriage.

Husbands to Love Their Wives

Pray for husbands who have married child brides to love them and treat them with dignity and respect. “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her” (Eph. 5:25-27).

Against Child Marriages

Pray for child marriage to not be used as a tool of manipulation. In some cultures, a bride price is welcome income for a poor family, and a groom will receive a smaller dowry if the bride is young.

Child Brides to Learn of God

Pray for child brides to learn of God’s heart for them: “For your Maker is your husband. …The LORD will call you back as if you were a wife deserted and distressed in spirit—a wife who married young, only to be rejected, says your God” (Isa. 54:5-6).

Children of Young Mothers

Pray for children who are born to adolescent mothers and therefore face greater health and nutritional risks. Child marriage is linked with increased risk of death to both mother and child.

Better Safeguards for Girls

Pray for every nation to set 18 as the legal minimum age of marriage. Pray for safeguards to ensure that parental consent or other exceptions would not be used to force girls into marriage.

Comfort in God's Word

Pray for child brides to find comfort and truth in God’s Word. (2 Cor. 1:3-4)

Changed Minds and Hearts

Pray for changed minds and hearts in cultures where child brides are used to pay debts, manage disputes or settle social, economic and political alliances.
