10012 have prayed

Let us pray that every country take the measures necessary to prioritize the future of the very young, especially those who are suffering.

Prayer

Father of Goodness,
the birth of your Son Jesus opens a new time to the world,
a time of hope and peace.
We pray for children and adolescents,
especially those who live discouraged by their difficulties and sufferings,
who do not find opportunities to develop, feel enthusiasm for the future,
nor the support they need to have a decent life.
Help us to give them a bright future,
embracing with love the children and adolescents of today,
so they can transform the world that you have created
in a space of life and fraternity among all.
Our Father…

 

Offering Prayer

 

Father of Goodness, I know you’re with me.
Here I am on this new day.
Place my heart once more
next to the Heart of your Son Jesus,
that is given for me and that comes to me in the Eucharist.
May your Holy Spirit
make me your friend and apostle, available to your mission.
I put in your hands
my joys and hopes,
my works and sufferings,
everything that I am and have,
in communion with my brothers and sisters of this worldwide prayer network.
With Mary I offer you my journey for the mission of the Church
and for the intentions of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network for this month. Amen.

Proposals for the month

  • Promote, in your own community, a time of reflection on the challenges that children and adolescents face today and in the future, at a social, economic, educational level, etc.
  • Promote, in your community, instances for children and adolescents to be heard in their desires, expectations and needs before making decisions that affect their lives.
  • Promote a time of prayer, organized with children and adolescents, in which they themselves are protagonists and feel support from the community in their promotion and development.
