Please Pray For The Children

School starts this week for thousands of children in our county, across Georgia and our nation. In many public schools teachers will tell you 85-90 percent (or higher) of children receive free or reduced lunches. For many of those children school lunch is the only meal they eat each day. According to the feeding America website, 19 million children in the U.S. suffer from hunger every day.

We see more and more single parents (usually moms or grandmothers) struggling to work, to find work, and to provide for their children. Too often these children don’t know what to expect when they get home after school. Too often abuse abounds. Too often fathers neglect their kids and families. Too often stepparents struggle to take the place of a spouse.

Too often too many of these beautiful children feel neglected, lonely, hungry, confused, misguided and abandoned. They don’t know how to express themselves. Often they can’t trust their parent or parents because the parent or parents are as confused and misguided as their children. These beautiful children don’t have anyone to trust.

Please, please pray for these children. Most of the time they have no one, NO ONE, to turn to for love and acceptance. Jesus said the fields are white for the harvest. Please pray for God to provide a way to reach these precious children. Please pray for someone (maybe you) to come along side them and love them and show them the love of Jesus. They are desperate.

    Steve, What a heartfelt cry from a true teacher’s heart. Thank you.

    It is heartbreaking to witness the neglect of children everywhere.

    Yes at ChristianBlessings we are focusing on children this year.
    I encourage each reader, follower of ChristianBlessings to just look
    – out your window to a neglected neighbour’s child,
    – into the schoolbus your child or grandchild’s travels in,
    – look up and behind you as you walk the streets of your city or neighbourhood,
    and identify a neglected child.
    God loves him or her and you must too.
    You have not come across that child by accident – it is for a purpose – that you be God’s hand extended to the innocent, lonely and neglected “nobody’s child”.
    You were once a child. Do to them what you would have wished others had done for you.

    “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40
    What are you doing with the blessings He has bestowed on you?

      Evelyn,
      What a wonderful intention to serve and help the neglected and lost children who live around us, and they do. You don’t have to go to the slums and under bridges to find lonely and neglected children. They are nearer than we think and oh so lonely and desperate for someone to love and accept them. God bless your efforts on CB, Evelyn, and I will be focusing more of my writing on this worthwhile effort. God bless you, my friend.
