The Bible is a missionary book through and through … The main line of argument that binds us all together is the unfolding and gradual execution of a missionary purpose. —Bruce Ker

Scriptures for Praying for the Lost, Impoverished & Exploited Children and People
A Simple Way to Pray the Word
This prayer is mostly focused on Elijah’s Cry as a labor to be sent into the harvest for the lost, children and the poor but you can change it as you will to personalize it for you , your church or ministry.
It’s very easy and simple to pray the word and personalize it towards those you are praying for. I believe in fully being led by the Spirit especially in intercessory prayer, which is to say, basically praying for the needs of others to be met.
Justice is making wrong things right. So part of our intercession is for God to make wrong things that are being done to the children such as sexual exploitation, child labor and situations such as poverty and starvation which are Biblically against His will for them and for God to make them right according to His word and will. In the end times, the subject of justice is a primary focus in both God’s and Satan’s kingdoms. The false justice movement is rooted in idolatry of humanism or occultism (harlot Babylon). The humanistic justice system lacks respect for human dignity and fear of God. (measured by a legal foundation and structure that is not under girded by biblical morality). There are many people and organizations doing good works to try to stop the injustices in the world but they lack one major thing. JESUS! They can temporarily fix the problem in the natural but the root of all the wars, famines and injustices is spiritual, sinful and satanic. Jesus is the answer and way out of all of these.
Below are some Scriptures, prayers and how I would do it but you be led by the Spirit who makes intercession.
Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
1 Timothy 2:1 Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself a ransom for all,
Also this type praying is a way to build your faith, Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. and will give you confidence that your prayers will be answered. 1 John 5:14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
I must add that all our prayers should be prayed to the Father in Jesus name. John 14:13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. John 15:16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.
You can begin the prayers with praying,
“Father, In Jesus name I pray Your word over and for all the lost, impoverished and exploited children and people of the Philippines, S.E. Asia and Oceania; those that we and Elijah’s Cry are called to pray for and go to.
Isaiah 30:18c For the LORD is a God of justice;
Prayer: Speak the verse first out loud. Then Pray, “Lord I thank You that You are a God of justice. I ask that You would bring forth justice for those we pray over through out these regions of the world and especially those that we and Elijah’s Cry are called to.”
Then you continue to pray as the Spirit brings other thoughts to your mind formed from the basis of this verse expanding it further.
Psalm 89:14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; Mercy and truth go before Your face
Prayer: Speak the verse out loud. Then pray, “Lord, bring forth Your righteousness and justice from Your throne for the lost, impoverished and exploited children and people on the streets and anywhere in these regions of the world and minister to them in Your mercy and truth through the laborers You will send to them.
Again you can continue to pray as the Spirit brings other thoughts to your mind formed from the basis of this verse expanding it further.
For those of you that come from a Charismatic background you can also pray in tongues as the Spirit wills which is also a form of intercession. (See again Romans 8:26-27) Now please if you don’t believe in this doctrine don’t let this become a stumbling block for your prayers and giving because these children need our help and we should be focused on being the Jesus they need with skin on, loving them, praying for their protection, salvation, healing, deliverance and their natural needs to be met.
Psalm 72:2 He will judge Your people with righteousness,
And Your poor with justice.
4 He will bring justice to the poor of the people;
He will save the children of the needy,
And will break in pieces the oppressor
This one for me is very simple. I would just remove a few words and insert some words into the verse.
Prayer: Speak the verse out loud. Then pray,” Lord I ask You to bring justice to the poor of the people, the children we are praying for; Save these children of the needy, And break in pieces their spiritual and physical oppressors.
Psalm 72:12 For He will deliver the needy when he cries,
The poor also, and him who has no helper.
13 He will spare the poor and needy,
And will save the souls of the needy.
14 He will redeem their life from oppression and violence;
And precious shall be their blood in His sight.
Prayer: Speak the verse out loud. Then pray, “Father, deliver these needy children as they cry out who have no helper. Spare them and save their souls. Redeem their lives from oppression and violence as their blood is precious in Your sight.”
Pray these prayers with intensity and emotion from the love and heart of compassion of Jesus. If you don’t have this, all you need do is ask Him for it.
James 5:16 The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
Psalm 82:3 Defend the poor and fatherless;
Do justice to the afflicted and needy.
Prayer: Speak the verse out loud. Then pray, “Father, defend these lost, poor, fatherless children and people for whom we intercede. Do justice to them as they are afflicted and needy.”
Matthew 9: 36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
Deuteronomy 10:18 He administers justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the stranger, giving him food and clothing.
Prayer: Speak the verse out loud. Then pray, “Lord as You are moved with compassion for there we pray over send those You would call as laborers and Elijah’s Cry into their lives to meet all their needs and for a great harvest.’ ’Lord we thank You that you administer justice to all these we pray for, that You love them and are providing for them food and clothing for them and through Your chosen laborers and Elijah’s Cry.”
Deuteronomy 14:29 And the Levite, because he has no portion nor inheritance with you, and the stranger and the fatherless and the widow who are within your gates, may come and eat and be satisfied, that the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your hand which you do.
Prayer: Speak the verse out loud. Then pray.” Father, give us Your heart for the lost and the impoverished, exploited and street children so we can pray and give according to Your will so they can eat and be satisfied. Thank you that as we do this You will bless us in all the work of our hands.”
The next Psalm is so long but so powerful I just added my words in italics to personalize it.
Psalms 10: (Speak the verse out loud) 2 Proud and brutal people hunt down the poor. But let them get caught by their own evil plans! 3 The wicked brag about their deepest desires.
Those greedy people hate and curse you, Lord.
4 The wicked are too proud to turn to you or even think about you.
5 They are always successful, though they can’t understand your teachings, and they keep sneering at their enemies. 6 In their hearts they say, “Nothing can hurt us! We’ll always be happy and free from trouble.” 7 They curse and tell lies,
and all they talk about is how to be cruel or how to do wrong. 8 They hide outside villages and throughout the streets and in dark alleys, waiting to capture, harm or strike and murder some innocent victim.
9 They are hungry lions hiding in the bushes, hoping to catch some helpless passerby. They trap the poor and innocent children in nets and drag them away. 10 They crouch down and wait to grab a victim 11 They say, “God can’t see! He’s got on a blindfold.”
Prayer: Then pray 12 Do something, Lord God, and use your powerful arm to help these children and those in need.
13 The wicked don’t respect you. In their hearts they say, “God won’t punish us!” 14 But you see the trouble and the distress, and you will do something. The children and poor can count on you, and so can orphans. Lord, You say You wish that none perish and all come to repentance and to make intercession for all men 2 Peter 3:9, 2 Timothy 2:1. We pray for these wicked men and women, that You save those that will be saved but for the protection of all these we pray over; for the rest of the wicked we pray15 Now break the arms of all merciless people. Punish them for doing wrong and make them stop.16 Our Lord, you will always rule, but nations will vanish from the earth. 17 You listen to the longings of those who suffer. You offer them hope, and you pay attention to their cries for help. 18 You defend orphans and everyone else in need, so that no one on earth can terrify others again.
Joel 3:3 They threw dice to decide which of my people
would be their slaves.
They traded boys to obtain prostitutes
and sold girls for enough wine to get drunk.
Psalm 144:7 Reach down from heaven and rescue me;
rescue me from deep waters,
from the power of my enemies.
Prayer: Speak these two verses out loud. Then pray. “Father many of these who are we are praying over are being sold and kidnapped to become sex slaves and used in so many other sick and wicked ways. Reach down from heaven and rescue them out of these deep waters of perversion and harm from the power of their enemies.”
Isaiah 42:22 But this is a people robbed and plundered;
All of them are snared in holes,
And they are hidden in prison houses;
They are for prey, and no one delivers;
For plunder, and no one says, “Restore!”
Matthew 19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven
Matthew 18:10 “Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven.
Prayer: Speak the three verses out loud. Then pray.” Father the lost, children and the poor are robbed and plundered. They’re ensnared and hidden away in a prison house of poverty, hunger, fear and oppression. They are a prey for so many and no one delivers and there is no one to restore them. Anoint, empower and provide for Your sent laborers and Elijah’s Cry to go to these children to deliver them from their spiritual, emotional and physical prisons that very few can see. Give Your sent laborers and Elijah’s Cry the grace and help to do Your will in rescuing these children from their oppressors. Bring them to Jesus and minister to their spiritual, emotional and physical needs for such is the kingdom of heaven. Let no one despise any of these we are praying for as their angels always see the face of our Father in heaven. May their angels protect them from every kind of harm.”
Luke 18: 7 And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? 8 I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”
1 Timothy 2:1 Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men,
Prayer: Speak the two verses out loud. Then pray. ”Father, as we intercede on behalf of those we pray for, ‘Give them justice from their adversaries.’ ‘We seek You on their behalf and ask You to give us the endurance to continually pray for their freedom and salvation so we won’t lose heart.’ Answer now speedily Lord for they are in great danger every day and deliver them from all the injustices as we as from Your faith in our hearts.”
Malachi 4: 5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet, Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. 6 And he will turn The hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.”
Prayer: Speak the verse out loud. Then pray. ”Father send forth the spirit of Elijah to the fathers, those in Your Church; turning the hearts of the fathers to the lost, children and the poor that they may no longer be blind to their plight and do something about it. Turn the hearts of the lost, children and the poor to the fathers, those in Your Church so they might receive Jesus and all the help He is sending them.”
Isaiah 40: 1 “Comfort, yes, comfort My people.” Says your God. 2 “ Speak comfort to Jerusalem, and cry out to her, That her warfare is ended, That her iniquity is pardoned; For she has received from the LORD’s hand, Double for all her sins.” 3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “ Prepare the way of the LORD; Make straight in the desert A highway for our God. 4 Every valley shall be exalted And every mountain and hill brought low; The crooked places shall be made straight And the rough places smooth; 5 The glory of the LORD shall be revealed, And all flesh shall see it together;
Prayer: Speak the verse out loud. Then pray.” Lord comfort all those we are praying for as You send laborers and Elijah’s Cry to them. Let them know their warfare has ended because You are there and their sins are forgiven because You died for them. Give them double blessings for their sins and forgive them because they know not what they do. Make Your sent laborers and Elijah’s Cry a voice of one crying out in the wilderness of the streets, ghettos, highways, byways, urban and rural areas of the Philippines, S.E. Asia and Oceania where all these we pray over live. Make a straight way and a highway into the desert of their lives and hearts for You to occupy for all eternity. Make every valley in their lives high, every mountain low, every crooked place straight and every rough place smooth so Your glory can be revealed to them and they all shall see it.”

The kings of the earth took their stand, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord and against His Christ.’ For truly against Your holy Servant Jesus, whom You anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the people of Israel, were gathered together to do whatever Your hand and Your purpose determined before to be done. Now, Lord, look on their threats, and GRANT TO YOUR SERVANTS THAT WITH ALL BOLDNESS THEY MAY SPEAK YOUR WORD, BY STRETCHING OUT YOUR HAND TO HEAL, AND THAT SIGNS AND WONDERS MAY BE DONE through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.” And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness (Acts 4:24-31).
