A prayer by Clare Hooper
The God of the Toddler Group
May the craft table reflect the creativity of our creator. May each child know that they too have been wonderfully made and are treasured and loved.
May story time give space for God’s story to be shown as each child is known and noticed.
When it comes time to sing may each child, parent and caregiver know that God delights over them with singing.
May they hear God’s voice much louder than the voices which might put them down and limit what is possible.
May the toys, space and games be part of a child’s journey towards sharing so they may grow to reflect the generosity of God who welcomes our participation to play with him in building his kingdom.
May you know that each welcome you give, the time you spend listening, the encouraging word you speak is good news and I thank God every time I think of you and the ministry that he has given each of you.
