5 prayers from Sri Lankan children

We recently had the privilege of spending time with five children from one of our Sri Lankan projects. 

Sulakshana, Rasika, Abilash, Sujani and Sajeevan courageously shared their prayers with us. Be inspired by their simple yet meaningful words. Add your voice and pray along with them.

 “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these."Matthew 19:14

Sulakshana 

Girl from Sri Lanka

“I want to be a doctor when I grow up. Sometimes I pray that would happen. I pray my father would get enough work."

 

Rasika 

Rasika from Sri Lanka

“I like coming to this project. I like it because I have friends and people care for us here. I pray with my friends at the project. I pray for the food that we get. At the project I get good food."

 

Abilash 

Boy praying

"When I pray, I close my eyes tight, so that nothing will distract me and then I pray. I pray for my friends. I pray for my family. I also sometimes pray for rain, because it’s so hot here.”

 

Sujani

Sujani from Sri Lanka

“I like the project. I like my teacher. When we pray at class I pray for my teacher.”

 

Sajeevan

Smiling boy from Sri Lanka

"I pray for my family. My prayer is that I would be able to keep coming here and learning at the project."
