If you’ve not already noticed, we have been blessed with lots and lots of children at our church. Children are awesome and a blessing from God. We need to pray for our children in our church, in our family and all the others we know.
From what I understand off our children’s workers, if you want to be where the action is you need to be in children’s work. They’ve seen salvation's, healing, visions miracles etc…. Amazing!!!
We need to pray that we are seeing them grow in Christ and we want to see salvation and baptisms in our children.
We also need to ask God for mercy and protection from the evil one for them.
We need to pray for parents of young children as it can be a tough and lonely time.
Pray for love, endurance, patience and wisdom for them as they parent their children.
Pray also for the Children’s workers and give God thanks for them. They do the toughest, most sacrificial role in the church!!!!
When most of the church is drinking their brews chatting with their friends, they will be packing up Children’s work, often on their own, after missing the beginning, middle and end of the service!!!! And that will be after spending hours and hours of preparation time during the week.
Please pray for God to supply us more children’s workers as and if you're stirred come and have a chat with us!
Please also pray for the mother and baby group led by Beth Smith at Bentham Road Surgery.
Ultimately we want to step out in faith our children’s ministry growing in breadth and depth so please pray for Wisdom, faith and provision in this area.
God is good!!!
Helpful Bible Verses

He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.
See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
