Prayers for Children

Prayers with Children

 

Before praying, it is suggested that there is a discussion with the children about the people and places they wish to pray for.

 

A prayer for when a friend is ill

 Dear God, (name of friend) is ill. They are not allowed to go to school or come over to play. I’m sad because I miss them. They must be feeling miserable and lonely as well. Please be close to them. Please be with the people who are looking after them. Please help them to get better and to know that you love them. Amen.

 

A prayer for the world

 God of love and hope, you made the world and care for all creation, but the world feels strange right now. The news is full of stories about Coronavirus. Some people are worried that they might get ill. Others are anxious for their family and friends. Be with them and help them to find peace. We pray for the doctors and nurses and scientists, and all who are working to discover the right medicines to help those who are ill. Thank you that even in these anxious times, you are with us. Help us to put our trust in you and keep us safe. Amen.

 

A prayer at bedtime

 Before the ending of the day, Creator of the world, we pray That you, with steadfast love, would keep Your watch around us while we sleep.

 Tonight we pray especially for (names family or friends who are affected by Coronavirus) and the people of (country or place which is affected by

Coronavirus). Please give skill and wisdom to all who are caring for them. Amen.

 

A prayer remembering God is with us

 Lord God, you are always with me. You are with me in the day and in the night. You are with me when I’m happy and when I’m sad. You are with me when I’m healthy and when I am ill. You are with me when I am peaceful and when I am worried. Today I am feeling (name how you are feeling) because (reasons you are feeling this way).
