Intergenerational Prayer: Jesus, Come

Here’s a beautiful prayer for children written by Bruce Prewer. 

Prayer for Children
(inspired by John 6)

Loving God,
thank you for offering us Jesus Christ,
    like the simple gifts of bread and grape juice,
to satisfy our deepest hunger
and quench our deepest thirst.

Please come
    into even the darkest corner of our lives.
Please come
    into our heart, and mind and soul.
Uncurl your strength and beauty within us.
    until we become more like you
    and show it in the things we do and say.

Through Jesus our Brother and our Saviour.
Amen!
