Smelliest places: pray for those in unsuitable living conditions.
There are 3.9 million children living in poverty in the U.K; that’s 9 children in every class of 30.
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 God Our Father.
I pray today for the children that live in poverty.
Please keep these children safe from danger of all kinds.
Let them live in a place where they are respectfully treated and loved.
We take clean clothes and washing facilities for granted.
Help us remember those that don’t live with such basics.
Let the children and teenagers who live in such poverty not be disadvantaged.
Guide me in my efforts to help these children prosper and grow.
