Pray- June 17, 2020
Scripture: Matthew 18:1-5
Invite the children and youth in your household to write prayers that you can say together every day this week. Give them space to choose the words to say, and let them lead the prayers.
Take a moment today to bless your children and youth with this prayer for young persons from the Book of Common Prayer:
God our Father, you see your children growing up in an unsteady and confusing world: Show them that your ways give more life than the ways of the world, and that following you is better than chasing after selfish goals. Help them to take failure, not as a measure of their worth, but as a chance for a new start. Give them strength to hold their faith in you, and to keep alive their joy in your creation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
