  4. for the Compassion center leaders
  5. for her family
  6. to resist negative peer pressure

  15. to develop her skills and talents
  16. to learn from the center programs
  17. to make wise decisions

  21. to resist temptation
  22. to always tell the truth
  23. for the desire to follow God's will
  24. for good sibling relationships
