Is International Children's Day and the needs of Children are paramount.
The needs of Children around the world are similar in that We All face the enemy Together and Our prayers for the younger generations are essential. We adults grew up with 'it' too and have All been affected one way or another; in mind and some in mind/body terribly and through our cultures that developed over the years.
Child poverty is still huge and real. Abuse and neglect are still on the go. Children are still afflicted with sickness and illness and disability bringing great stress and distress to Them and Their Mums and Dads and Family and friends and also every aspect of Their life, including, if They are fortunate enough to have access to schooling.
Children are still being horifically traffiked.
2.5 billion people out there still live without sanitation - toilet facilities, clean running water and carrying huge health and hygiene risks.
Many children are left and even abandoned in appaling living circumstances that would upset even the hardest of hearted.
Children here in the UK are not exempt from these things either although our measure of poverty is lower than Others, thank God, but is still affecting Their quality of life.
I have worked a lot with Children in nurseries, primaries and high schools as well as with social work so I know what I am talking about.
Can We remember please the huge needs of God's young ones out there and include Them in Our prayers. Thank You.
Much more focus from now on from Me on the young generations of today because They have had to face what I never did as a girl. As an adult, I have struggled at times to make sense of the condition of the world and I have a hopeful Christian perspective and also have a lot of life experience. How must They feel? How much MORE now do the youth of today NEED GOD AND CHRIST!
Spirit, join us Together in prayer about Your Children. They have come through a lot and handled many adult themes and problems at an age when We as adults in You have been concerned. They have done so well but need to know the Saviour and we as adults need to introduce Them to Him in any way we can - making the most of opportunities personally and prayerfully. Thank You that I share Your care for the Children as many of Us do. help Us help Them more. Spirit, please be with the Children and assure them. comfort Them, guide Them and be at their side day and night bringing Your light into the darkness surrounding them. Give Them faith, hope and love and keep them sa
The Lord works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed. He redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion
