Then people brought little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked them. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:13-14 NIV)
As you pray today, pray for the children and children’s ministry of your local church. Communicating the gospel to them and displaying the love of Jesus to them is one of the most important things we do.
Pray for their leaders as well. Pray that their heart for children will grow even more and that they will be encouraged in their service. And pray that God will call more caring adults into service in this vital ministry.
