Pray

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God." – Philippians 4:6

Orphanages for Africa is founded on prayer and faith that God works powerfully in response to prayer. We are inspired by George Müller, who relied solely on God as he cared for orphans in 19th Century England.

We're praying for God to raise up a network of believers who are committed to interceding for us, our partners and the children in their care. If you would like to be a part of this network please sign up for regular prayer updates in the box to the right. We will email you news and info on our partners' needs so that you can pray in an informed way.
