Matthew 25:40 (NLT)
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
Gracious God, on this, the third day of Children’s Mental Health Week, we lift before you all Children’s Services. Lord we know there are many, many agencies and charities working to ensure that our children are kept safe and we pray for our national Social Services, Adoption and Fostering agencies. So too, we pray for the many organisations that seek to address mental health issues and support families. We appreciate Lord, that providing help and support is particularly difficult both logistically and financially during this pandemic, but we just pray that these essential services can find ways to continue their vital work in assisting children to grow and thrive emotionally. God of strength and wisdom, we lift before you today all professional and volunteer workers and ask that You bless and guide the service, care and compassion they give to our children. May Your presence and love be felt in our communities today. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
