A prayer for UNICEF on United Nations Day

Here is a prayer for United Nations Day - October 24. Since that comes just one week before Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF, this prayer lifts up UNICEF's important work caring for the world's children.

God of the days and months and years of our lives, we give thanks for the community of nations that is embodied in the United Nations. We are grateful for vision of UNICEF, for their call to believe in zero- that not one single child should die of preventable causes. Stir us to embrace our own vision that one or two or three Christians can make a difference, for we know that you have promised that where two or three are gathered together in your name, there you will be also. Amen.
