City Transformation: Runaway Children
- Pray for healing and restoration in the families of runaways. (According to Shawna Kemppainen, who started working with homeless kids a few years ago, “disruptive family conditions are the main reason young people leave home, whether [due to] abuse, neglect or economic hardship.)
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.
“In those days people will no longer say,
‘The parents have eaten sour grapes,
and the children’s teeth are set on edge.’” — Jeremiah 31:29
