Enforcement of Laws

Pray for the creation and enforcement of laws addressing child marriage and for the removal of legal loopholes and exceptions. (Deut. 11:1)

End of FGM

Pray for an end to female genital mutilation as a rite of passage to womanhood. It is usually followed by child marriage. We praise God for the progress made in Ethiopia to end these practices.

Protection for Children

Pray for the protection of child brides. “But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you” (Ps. 5:11).

God's View of Marriage

Pray for God’s view of marriage — as between one man and one woman — to be embraced. Pray that abstinence education will be taught and lived out in cultures around the world. (Heb. 13:4)

Decline of Child Marriages

Pray for the continuing decline of child marriage around the world. In the last 10 years, the number of child brides has dropped from 25% to 21% globally.

Those Suffering Domestic Violence

Pray for child brides suffering from domestic violence. Many find themselves victims of physical, sexual, verbal and emotional abuse. (Ps. 140:1)

Girls From Poor Households

Pray for girls from poor households and rural areas who are at greater risk of becoming child brides. Many of these brides have little or no education.

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)
