Praying for Children – Tuesday

Karaka Mo Ngā Tamariki 2021

Remembering… Innocence

You have accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord. Now keep on following him. Plant your roots in Christ and let him be the foundation for your life. Be strong in your faith, just as you were taught. And be grateful.

Colossians 2:6-7 CEV

Practicing Innocence

Innocence is more than and idea to think about or even an attitudes to take. If we truly are to follow Jesus’ call into discipleship and become like a child, then we will need to repeatedly and intentionally engage with practices that, over time, will form in us a childlike inner posture, shaping the way we approach all of life.

Remember how much you played as a child? Today, many children “play” virtually. With Lockdown, they are not able to interact with peers outside of their bubble. That is why it is important you encourage them to play. Playing is a practical way to remember your innocence and create memories for your little one under your care. One day, they will be able to look back and with fondness on playful innocence.
