WORLD WEEKEND OF PRAYER FOR CHILDREN AT RISK
Over the weekend of 5th - 6th June, Christians around the world are praying for children at risk. In Mark 10: 13-16, we see Jesus’ frustration with the disciples who were rebuking those bringing the children to Him. Jesus took the children in His arms, laid His hands on them and, as the Amplified Version tells us, ‘He fervently invoked a blessing on them’. What a challenge to think that Jesus said ‘to such as these belongs the Kingdom of God’ when we see so many children suffering in Zimbabwe, and indeed, around the world.
Join us in praying for these children, this weekend and beyond.
We come in agreement today asking that You touch the lives of children who have never known what it is to receive affection , warm arms that offer love, or a place of safety and security.
We are sorry because we have not always opened our hearts or arms to speak and act on behalf of children at risk in order to serve them and make Your will known in the earth.
We pray that the cries of children who suffer would be heard by those who carry Your name Lord Jesus. We pray that You would send more workers into this ‘harvest field’ of millions. We pray for more intercessors, mothers and fathers to show Your love in this needy world. We pray that communities would be transformed as children discover Your love and that the world will know the good news of Your Kingdom as people work together in unity and love.
