Tuesday, April 4

April 2023 has been proclaimed as National Child Abuse Prevention Month. “We want every young person in the United States who has faced the fear and pain of abuse or neglect to know they are not alone,” President Joe Biden stated in the announcement.

“We have a moral obligation to protect every child in America and to help survivors heal,” the president continued. “To support our children, we are continuing our efforts to reduce child poverty across the board.”

The president added, “It has been said that a Nation is judged by how we treat the most vulnerable among us. Nowhere is that truer than when it comes to protecting our children, making sure they grow up safe from harm and surrounded by love. That is on all of us.”

“I call upon all Americans to observe this month by joining together as a Nation to promote the safety and well-being of all children and families and to recognize the child-welfare professionals and allies who work tirelessly to protect our children,” the president concluded.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For God to be at work through the recognition of National Child Abuse Prevention Month.
  • For guidance for president as he works to create new policies and lead the nation in a way that protects children and secures a bright future for them.
  • For wisdom and discernment for the president as he works with administration officials on programs to care for the nation’s children.
