“Let the Little Children Come”
Prevent us, O Lord, from standing in the way of any who come to you in their humility, in their need, and in their vulnerability.
Prevent us, O Lord, from standing in our own way of coming to you by denying our humility, our need, and our vulnerability.
“Then little children were being brought to him in order that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples spoke sternly to those who brought them; but Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.’ And he laid his hands on them and went his way.” (Matthew 19:13-15)
