Monday AM Prayer Focus: Like Children

October 20, 2013 10:56 PM by Diane

When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it." And He took the children in His arms, put His hands on them and blessed them. Mark 10:14-16.

Dear Jesus, Restore our child like hearts. As we grow up, we can become hardened, suspicious, harsh, and bitter. We want to be open to You and Your love in our lives. Lord, we want to keep our trust in You. Give us the innocence and enthusiasm of a child. Keep us from filling our thoughts with worries about what if this or that. Instead, when things get tough, let us remember nevertheless You will work things out for our good and Your glory. Amen.
