Late at night: pray for dysfunctional families
Over 50,000 children in England were identified as needing protection from abuse last year.
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 Caring God.
I pray for those children raised in dysfunctional families.
Children living in a world where they survive but not grow.
Give strength to those that help these family’s.
Allow your warmth and love to penetrate their lives.
Bring calm into their chaos
Love into their fear.
