A Prayer for Bangladesh (December 3, 2018)

O loving God, we pray for 18-year-old Jesmine, a new mother who must return to work in a garment factory this week in Dhaka, Bangladesh.  Employed in the garments industry since age eleven, she married at fourteen and now has a six-week-old baby girl.  Since the factory allows only six weeks of unpaid leave after a delivery, Jesmine will now have to leave her daughter at home each day with her mother.  With no refrigerator in their cramped, dark, and dingy rented quarters, Jesmine will not be able to leave enough breastmilk behind to feed the baby for the day; so the child will begin bottle feedings of artificial formula, drastically increasing the family’s food costs and putting the child’s life at risk because of Dhaka’s contaminated water supply.  Lord, strengthen and guide Jesmine as she returns to work, and help her daughter receive not only the safe nutrition she will need to survive but also the physical and mental stimulation she will need to thrive, we pray in the name of Christ, the Merciful.  Amen.
