Runaways 4

City Transformation: Runaway Children

  • Pray for local service agencies that provide immediate shelter and support for jobs and permanent residence, particularly Urban Peak, which has seen a 24% rise in the number of 15-20 year olds who stayed in their shelter last year.

We are praying this week for local runaway children and their families. Nearly 1,000 kids flee their homes each year in the Pikes Peak region. While many return in a day or two, some do not and are at increasing risk to become victimized or worse.

“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice
and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free
and break every yoke?
Is it not to share your food with the hungry
and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe them,
and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?” — Isaiah 58:6-7
