Diocesan Safeguarding Prayer

Lord our God, look with favour on our children whom we as a Church commend to your tender care.
Your Son gladly welcomed little children.
He took them in his arms, blessed them and held them up as an example for us all.
We pray that you, Father, will also send your blessing upon all of us, so that we may play our part in helping our children to grow in Christ, and by the power of the Holy Spirit, may they become Christ’s witnesses in a world which craves their energy, light and generosity.
Allow us to create environments where children, clergy and parish ministers flourish and minister to each other in a spirit of light, love and joy.
We also beg your pardon for the times we have failed in this ministry.
We remember those who have been hurt and those who are hurting, may your healing be a source of strength and comfort to them and their families.
As we strive to create safe environments where we can freely minister to them, may we be open to you ministering to us in and through them.
