Tuesday Teachings: An Interfaith Prayer for Children
Between now and Children's Sabbath, all our Tuesday Teachings will revolve around the subject of children's advocacy. Today's feature is a simple opening prayer for an interfaith Children's Sabbath. Click here to download more Children's Sabbath materials.
Eternal source of love and justice, we gather here from many places, different traditions, and diverse experiences. We give you thanks for the richness of our diversity and the treasured uniqueness of each one here.
We also gather here, brought together by what unites us and makes us one: concern for children in need—those pressed down by poverty, passed over for health care, pushed along a pipeline to prison. We give you thanks for planting in each of us a heart that cares for your most vulnerable children and a passion for justice so that every child may grow and flourish. We give you thanks for our shared concern and commitment.
Use us now, we pray, to create change for your children so that each will know the hope of a better tomorrow. Let all people of love and justice say, Amen.
