US Churches Steps Up to Pray for Abused Children

Churches across America will be praying on the last Sunday of April which is Blue Sunday.  On this day they will remember the millions of children who need prayers and support. What will your church do?

Who: The Faith Community

What: A Day to pray for the millions of victims of child abuse and for those who rescue them.

Where: Churches across our nation

When: Sunday, April 24, 2022

Why:  April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. It began when a report about abused and neglected children caught the attention of President Ronald Reagan in1983. Sadly, since that first Child Abuse Prevention Month, the number of abused victims has grown from half a million children to over six million new reports of abuse along with 1600 child abuse related deaths annually.

One is too many.

Faith Community we must face the facts:

  • One in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday.
  • Most child abuse incidents are drug and alcohol related.
  • Within one year of aging out of the foster care system, 66% of victims will be homeless, in jail or dead.
  • There are over 100,000 children waiting for adoption in the United States.

How to pray for abused children on Blue Sunday:

  1. Pray they will be rescued
  2. Pray they are placed with caring people
  3. Pray their minds and bodies can heal
  4. Pray they find hope
  5. Pray for those who rescue them

Let’s pray, educate ourselves, and volunteer until black and blue are just colors in a child’s crayon box.

Blue Sunday Child Abuse Prevention Initiative is dedicated to helping communities reach out to abused children and to support those who rescue them. We are a faith based 501c3 nonprofit organization.

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?

If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
