Praying for children 2020 Day 1: Making Space

In the beginning there was only God.

And then God said, “Let’s make space.”

And God concentrated.

And there was space!

Space for all things to be – stars and earwigs, mountains and mangoes, leeches and beaches and naked mole rats – all things in their amazing, fantastic and beautiful diversity.

Pause for thought…

Human beings are created in the image and likeness of God; we are connected to all of creation in a great web of blessing and belonging. God made space for us. How do we make the same gracious space for each other in all our beautiful diversity?

A prayer for today

Dear God,

Today we pray for children and say let’s make space!

Show us how we can do that more fully in our church community, with our friends, where we work and at home in our family.

In the name of Jesus,
