Each Sunday we offer a prayer reflecting on issues in the news or in the life of The Children's Society.
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.
Based on Psalm 111
holy and great is your name.
We pray for The Children’s Society,
for energy companies,
and for all involved in campaigning to protect children from energy debt:
That, like you, their work will be faithful and just,
founded on your wisdom,
inspired by your Holy Spirit
and strengthened by the power of your love.
Based on Isaiah 40:32
Loving God, we know you love everyone very much,
so today we’re asking you to help children who don’t have enough to eat
and children who live in houses that aren’t warm enough.
We don’t know who they are
so it’s hard for us to know how we can help
but we remember what Isaiah said:
that you can help us do things we never imagined we could do.
Help us to be kind and helpful to everyone we meet,
because we don’t know how much difference we might make
just by a smile, a kind word or a thoughtful act.
We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.
15 February, The Transfiguration
Based on 2 Corinthians 4.3-6
Jesus, Light of the world,
shine in us, so that, through us,
your good news may penetrate the veil of darkness
and the world may be radiant in the light of your glory.
