Then I remembered a conversation I had with someone many years ago. I was walking across the parking lot to the grocery store when this complete stranger approached me. She just wanted to tell me how much she admired the colorful jacket I was wearing. I thanked her for the compliment and was ready to move along when she suddenly grabbed my lapels, looked directly into my eyes, and shouted with great urgency, “Pray for the children! Please, pray for the children!”
She held on so tightly that I quickly promised that I certainly would do just that. Finally, she let me go and walked away. I hurried into the store.
Today, I don’t remember all those long ago prayers but, after reading the newspaper story, I remembered that promise. So, I begin again to pray specifically for the children, for all children, insisting on understanding their spiritual origin and parentage, and their safety in God’s embrace. Sheltered in Love, watched over by Principle, not one child can be left out, abandoned, neglected or abused. Each is “graven... upon the palms of [His] hands." (Isaiah 49:16)
Will you join me in praying for the world’s children today?
"Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me."
Christ Jesus (Mark 9:37)
"Children of light, you are not children of darkness."
Mary Baker Eddy (Miscellany, p. 191)
