All knowing God, break down our assumptions

Yesterday, we shared Rosie’s story, who we’ve supported recently. Today, we invite you to join us in prayer for young people across the country who face similar issues to Rosie.

All knowing God,
you know us better than we know ourselves.
You search us and you see us.
You know our thoughts before we do.

Help us to understand others.
To understand that there may be more behind anger,
more behind mischief,
more behind trouble makers,
than is first apparent.

Help us to see young people as you see them.
Break down our assumptions,
so that we understand where they are coming from,
what lies behind their actions
and are able to recognise their needs.

In Jesus’ name we pray,
Amen
