Praying from Matthew 18:5. Themes: Love, Humility, Service

Dear Lord,
We pray that you help us to receive every little child in your name. May we see them as precious gifts from you and treat them with love and kindness. Help us to be a reflection of your love to them and to always remember that when we receive them, we are receiving you. Amen.

Verse: Whoever receives one such little child in my name receives me,
Matthew 18:5

This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to receive little children in the name of Jesus, which is equivalent to receiving Jesus himself.
