God is Not Partial

Deuteronomy 10: 12-22

God is not partial. God executes justice for those in the greatest need. God took care of our ancestors when they were strangers in a strange land. Let us recognize what a loving God does and do likewise. 
In this time of diminishing resources let us remember the generosity of God and extend that generosity to others, without partiality. We, faithful followers of Jesus, must continue to work just as hard for educational opportunities for the children of strangers as we do for our own children.
God of justice and impartiality, as we begin this season of prayer for children, open our hearts and give us courage to speak and act on behalf of those who are most vulnerable, the children, in our local communities and in the wider world. Amen.

  1. Thank you all who worked so hard on such a meaningful event. Today, we at FCC Cumberland, MD began the "Light a Candle for all the Children" in our morning worship service. Everyone went home with a candle of their own and a copy of each day's readings and prayers. Everyone is to light the candle at 11:00 AM each day in their homes to be unified in prayer for all God's children.
