Prayers for Children, Aged and all in Custody
And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever, shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein., And he took them up in his arms,, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.(Mark 10:13-16|KJV-)
Loving Father, we thank You for the privilege we have to bring before You this day in prayer and thanksgiving, all who are in custody; as we call upon Your name this day for their sake, have mercy upon us and hear our prayers in Jesus Blessed name we pray. Amen.
God of Peace, we commend before You this day, children everywhere for Your blessings; bless them with Your divine touch and protect them from the peril of this life, make them grow in Wisdom, in Stature, in Favour with God and with Man. We re-dedicate them to You that throughout their childhood age, You will be their childhood pattern, they will grow in obedience to their parents and with the zeal for the house of the Lord.
Blessed Jesus, these children are precious gift from You unto their families, we pray You oh Lord to supply their caregivers with everything good and necessary for the training and upbringing, watch over them oh Lord, may their lives never be cut short by the evil ones, preserve their destines and uphold their future. Help the caregivers to understand that these children is a Trust from You and they will give account of them on the last day, help them to watch over them in love and in chastity that in all things, You alone will receive all the honour and adoration through Jesus Christ our Maker.

We commend for Your strength all whose strength are failing them because of old age, we pray that just as you preserve Simeon till the Coming of Christ, so we pray You preserve them in Your strength to eat the fruit of their Labour. Bless them with good health and sound mind, we rebuke sickness of old age in the name of Jesus Christ; Lord we Pray for their children, probably they have neglected to care for them, today in the name of Christ we ask that You will visit them with the Understanding and love to go back and show them love.
