Depending on a School Lunch


Ten-year-old Elisabeth enjoys lunch at her school in South Sudan. Her family sold its hut to purchase food. Now she is receiving at least one meal a day in school.

Pray for children who lack the food they need to attend school and succeed.

About 66 million children around the world — 23 million in Africa alone — attend school hungry. This makes concentrating on subjects difficult, and their learning suffers.

Heavenly Father, be with little ones as they seek to learn. Provide their parents with the means to send them to school well fed so the only hunger they know is an insatiable hunger to learn. Equip them with an education that prepares them to do the great things You have planned for their lives.

“Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life.” —Proverbs 4:13 (NIV)
