Prayer Requests From Around the World

Each morning I pray for my children to be happy, to be healthy, to be successful, and that they will feel loved. 

But sometimes my kids also have other specific prayer requests and I pray for these things as well when I receive these requests.  Below are some of the things that my children have asked for prayers about. 

Perhaps some of these prayer requests will help others pray for their kids too, and show you that kids everywhere have the same basic wants and needs.  And if any of my kids prayer requests jump out at you, please, say a prayer for them too!
