Heavenly Father, we thank you for this day and for awakening us this morning, we thank you for the many blessings that you bestowed upon us every second, Lord we come to you Lord on the behalf of the children of the world. We are living in perilous times Lord, sin is rampant, violence, evil, and sickness is at a serious overflow. Our children don't have a safe place to grow up in no more. Sin has tampered with, tainted and destroyed the world you so graciously created. I know you have a plan Lord where one day all of this will be no more, you have a place prepared for your children where all will be perfect, no more sickness, no more pain, no more tears, no more death, sin will not be present in the new world you are gonna bring about for your people, old things will pass away and all things will become new. Holy God we thank you for our children that you have blessed us with and we come together in prayer Lord asking that you would shower them with your protection, protect them from the pedophiles, the molesters, the abductors, the child abusers, the violence in the schools, the violence that is present in some of their homes, watch over them as they are on their way to school and coming home from shcool, as they play in the yards and on the playgrounds and as they sleep in their beds at night. Lord I pray that the law will work for them in bringing stiffer penalties and sentencing involving cases where sick people abduct, abuse, rape and or murder these precious children you have given us on loan. Our hearts cry everytime we see or hear of an amber alert or case where a child has been abused or murdered. All of these precious angels are a gift and are loved by somebody, I asked also for comfort upon the hearts that are hurting because they have lost one of these little ones or have one of these sweet babies still missing. I pray for recovery of these children that are still missing and for healing for the families, I also pray for wisdom for the parents to aid in the protection and safety of our children as well, let our eyes be watchful and our ears be open to the surroundings we allow our children in and the places we give them permission to go, let us be compassionate toward their needs and a ear to listen when they want or need to talk and let us show them Christ in us so they can live by example. Lord let us not forget to teach them to be cautious about their surroundings as well and not to go away with strangers or let anybody get to close to them or touch them in an innappropiate manner even when it comes to, sad to say, to family members as well. Lord we ask these things according to your will in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus, the Christ. Amen.
