Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14
Prayer for today
God of all mercy,
in these times when desperate people arrive on our shores
in small boats;
remind us that you are compassionate God,
who cares for the foreigner, the widow and the orphan,
and who looks to us to do the same,
through Christ our Lord.

Thought for the Day
The kingdom of God is a both/and kingdom.
It is something which is in the here and now,
and it is also something which we hope for in the future.
The kingdom of God is both a heavenly place
where there is no more tears or pain, or sickness;
and a place on earth
where the hearts of people are being mended,
and the hopeless are finding meaning and purpose.
When we pray
Thy kingdom come,
we are expressing a longing that things will be different,
(and a hope that one day they will be),
and at the same time
we are placing ourselves in the position of working toward a better world.
