Today we read about the child Jesus and his family becoming refugees and the mass killing of boys under two because of a king’s senseless status anxiety. Pray for all children who are caught up in circumstances they can neither control nor understand – remembering especially victims of neglect, and of physical, sexual and emotional abuse, and of organised trafficking for slavery.
Give thanks this week for all who work to protect children from maltreatment.
Give thanks for the work and witness of USPG, ABM’s sister organisation in the UK and Ireland.
