International Day of Prayer for Children

In September 2015 General André Cox called the youth and children’s leaders from across The Salvation Army world to a global conference, Right At the Heart. His challenge from the gospels was clear: 'Jesus takes young people and puts them right at the heart of his ministry - do we?' 

In 2016, as we approach the International Day of Prayer for Children on Sunday 3 April, this hope is in front of us. What could it look like when young people are Right at the Heart of the family, the community, and God’s kingdom? 

To assist corps with this theme, and to engage worshipping communities and young people in active prayer, resources have been provided for download here for each territory to use in their own setting. 

In addition to this, each territory may add specific prayer requests, praise points and news as they pray for young people around the globe.
