OCC Prayer Opportunities


Shoeboxes full of gifts can bring happiness for a moment—but introducing young hearts to eternal life through Jesus Christ is our ultimate goal. Please consider joining us to pray year-round on behalf of these precious children and their families.

Spiritual Impact Story for Mexico

A volunteer shared, “among the many testimonies of gratitude we have Edgar Mejia, who was shot last March in an attempted assault in Honduras - putting his life at risk. They asked for prayer through our prayer network in Mexico and God worked a miracle, so that Edgars life was not only saved, but he was left without any lingering effects and was back home in less than a week. We Praise God!”

Praises and Prayer Requests from Mexico

  • Praise God for the opportunity for sixty-five OCC sponsors and fifteen staff members to visit Veracruz to participate in evangelistic events and observe The Greatest Journey discipleship program.  Praise God for allowing the team and the guests to share the Gospel with more than 3,500 children and their families during their trip.
  • Praise God for the additional containers the teams received and for the additional children and families who will receive the message of salvation as a result.
  • Pray for The Greatest Journey discipleship program in each of the 25 states of Mexico that are implementing it.  Pray for the over 300,000 children who will be participating in the program.
  • Pray the upcoming national volunteer training meeting in July.  Pray for those leading the conference as they focus on the theme of “Preserving the Harvest.”  Pray for all of the regional leader volunteers who will be present for the training, fellowship, and celebration.
  • Pray God will continue to bless and prosper each and every one of the friends/sponsors who witnessed OCC in Veracruz.  Pray that God will continue to use their investment in the ministry of OCC in extraordinary ways.
