Waters edge: pray for refuges
Roughly 2.5 million Syrian refugees are under the age of 18.
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 Of Hope.
We pray for all those fleeing conflict and persecution.
Those risking their living in overcrowded boats, sailing in dangerous waters to start a new life.
A life without constant danger and conflict .
Open our hearts so we can provide shelter and hospitality.
Bless us with the resources and words to soothe their pains.
May our words and our actions be as bold as they can be.
We ask this of you Lord Jesus.
