Junior Church have been learning about Joseph and that amazing coat; and about asking, seeking, finding, about prayer these words are from their intercessions today.
Look Lord, we’re all small, babies compared to you, and however hard we try, can’t reach up and touch the sky. Our heads can never grasp all your truth; no one can ever know as much as you, but we are trying, Lord, to touch the sky, to grow up as we should.
We need your help. Reach down and carry us on your shoulders, then we might have a chance. Can’t do it by ourselves, we need your help, reach down Lord Jesus, so we can reach up.
Nobody likes to be scared, nobody likes to think about dying. Father we believe Jesus was scared and Jesus died, but that wasn’t the end of the story; like Joseph was scared and his father thought he was dead and that wasn’t the end of the story. When things look black and we’re scared, Lord help us to know, deep down inside, that, this isn’t the end of the story. Help us to remember Easter Day when Jesus showed himself alive, like Joseph to his brothers and to know that after the bad dreams, we are going to wake up in heaven.
‘Is there anyone among you, who if your child asks for a fish, will give a snake instead?’
May The Lord hear our prayers. Amen.
