  • Children who experience child abuse and neglect are 59% more likely to be arrested as a juvenile, 28% more likely to be arrested as an adult, and 30% more likely to commit violent crime

“Please pray for all of the children who experience abuse or neglect. Please pray that their parents will receive proper treatment and education so their families may become healthier and that these children will live better, healthier lives full of love, and play, and will be afforded a better future.”
