A prayer for World Day against Child Labour
- Loving God, we pray for children caught up in child labour to be rescued, reunited and accepted back into their families.
- We pray for the physical needs of these children. Most do not get enough to eat, and the physical labour they are forced to do can cripple their bodies. We pray, Lord, that you provide for them and protect them from harm.
- We pray for the girls and boys forced to work in the sex trade. We pray for those working to bring this abuse into the light so that it can be dealt with and for the love of Jesus to permeate those dark places. We pray for the healing of memories for those who have suffered.
- We pray for all governments to be proactive and serious in their efforts to end the exploitation of children.
All of this we ask in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. AMEN.
