A Prayer from the District Youth and Children's Coordinator
Sunday 24 October 2021
God, we pray for the life blood of our churches that is the children and young people, that they may know you deeper, to experience your love for them through your church and its people.
Jesus, we pray for those, who find themselves in the privileged position of working with the children and young people in London. Bless them Lord, bless their ministry and bless their passion.
Lord we pray for the various activities, events, clubs and groups that happen all over London. Whose aim is to reach children and young people in your name. We ask for your spirit to go ahead of us into the hearts and minds of the children and young people.
Holy Spirit we ask for you to move in the life of the Methodist church, that we will seek to be intentional about reaching the younger generations and innovative in approach, seeking new ways of preaching the gospel.
Please pray for:
For all the children and young people who have been affected by the pandemic, whether that be through the loss of a loved one or how the lockdowns have affected their mental health
For all those people who give their passions, gifts and time to enrich the lives of the children, young people and families across London.
For all the training and equipping days that happen across the District to empower children and youth workers with the knowledge and skills to better serve the children and young people.
