Silent places: pray for the forgotten quiet ones.
Children in care are less likely than their peers to do well at school.
I pledge to pray for families; children in the care system and those involved in adoption.
When I first read on the “Thy Kingdom Come” website find some extreme places to pray and film yourselves doing it. I thought of all the beautiful places I could pray: high on a mountain, in a darkest cave, under water in the depth of the sea, riding my bike through the countryside.
When I read it again I realised that I can see God’s beauty and creation in all of these places.
But to others these are not places of beauty but are the extremes of their lives.
The forgotten families and children of our society, often out of sight and unnoticed.
Dear Loving Seeing God.
My prayers today are for the children that go unnoticed.
The children that are silently living in fear.
I pray that your love can enter this secret world in which they live.
The challenges they face day to day, can leave them emotionally exhausted and very lonely.
Help them to find; strength to speak out and seek the help they need.
Give teachers, doctors, nurses and social workers the time; the right words to see beyond the silent smiling child in front them.
We all have responsibilities to our vulnerable children help me and others reach out to those in need.
