Helping victims of earthquakes and tsunamis

Prayer for Day 11

Children will, to a lesser or greater extent, do things that are not acceptable – for example, lying, stealing, cheating at games, not doing their jobs – but they need to be honest and accept punishment when it is deserved. Teachers have to instigate sanctions when children’s behaviour adversely affects their learning or the learning of others.

Lord, today I pray that the children grow up to be honest and straightforward, not trying to get away with something that they know is unacceptable. Help … always to do the right thing and if they fail to own up, accept punishment and strive not to do it again. I pray that carers and teachers will deal justly with these situations and that they may have strength to discern and punish when necessary. Amen.
