Prayer of the day

God be in my head, and in my understanding; God be in my eyes, and in my looking; God be in my mouth, and in my speaking; God be in my heart, and in my thinking; God be at mine end, and at my departing. Amen.

Book of Hours (1514)

Youthful God,
we thank you for the presence of children and young people
at Sunday worship and activities throughout the week.
We thank you for their commitment and character,
their energy and enthusiasm
and their skills and sense of humour.
As we teach them, may we learn from their insights;
as we talk to them, help us to listen to their wisdom;
as we lead them, may they lead us on our journey.
We thank you for leaders who commit themselves
to working alongside our young people,
and for those who establish policies
and follow procedures to ensure their safety among us. Amen.

Adam Biddlestone, District Children's Work, Wolverhampton and Shrewsbury District
