Rights and Responsibilities

Posted: February 1, 2014 in Uncategorized

As the world marks Universal Children’s Day (1st Feb) the anniversary of the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child – UNICEF urges a much stronger light be shone on the millions of children in every country and at every level of society.

Prayer for the week
We pray for respect for the rights of the child,
we pray that governments and adults having a real and effective commitment to the principle of children’s rights and apply the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child to all children.
We pray for safe, secure and healthy environments for children in families, communities and nations.
We pray that as adults we will defend children’s rights with the same passion that we have now as children.
We pray that we will treat each other with dignity and respect.
We pray that we are open and sensitive to our differences.

Hear our cries, O Lord, and let our bodies and souls be healed as the world is healed.
Amen.
