Each Sunday we offer a prayer reflecting on issues in the news or in the life of The Children's Society.

You can find the prayers for the month below, or available for download as a PDF. You may also be interested in our past prayers.

Sign up to our monthly prayer email to pray regularly with us.

We would encourage you to use the prayer in your personal devotions, in your church service, or by printing it in your church notice sheet.

However you use them, please do join us as we pray with and for children and young people.

 

Our Advent prayers

This month, our prayers are from our online Advent calendar. Follow the calendar to join us on our journey of prayer and reflection this season. 

This is a time of waiting,

a time to bring our questions, our fears and our hopes.

Yesterday, today and for ever, dear God,

be in our waiting and in our hoping.

 

This is a time of waiting and listening,

a time to hear your voice once more.

Yesterday, today and for ever, dear God,

be in our waiting and in our hoping.

 

This is a time of waiting, listening and turning,

away from our weakness and failings, towards your love.

Yesterday, today and for ever, dear God,

be in our waiting and in our hoping.

 

This is a time of waiting, listening, turning and preparing

to meet the Christ Child, God’s blessing in flesh.

Yesterday, today and for ever, dear God,

be in our waiting and in our hoping.
