Seeking peace. Striving for justice. Together.
November 20 brings the World Day of Prayer and Action for Children and Universal Children's Day. The Presbyterian Office of Child Advocacy and the Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations invite you to join people around the world and celebrate on that day or on Sunday, November 18 or Sunday, November 25.
The World Day of Prayer and Action for Children brings people together to pray and take action for the well-being of children on Universal Children’s Day (November 20) every year. Universal Children’s Day, established by the United Nations in 1954, also commemorates the 1989 adoption of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Because Jesus welcomed children and encouraged us to welcome them in his name;
Jesus lifted up a child as an example of what the realm of God is like;
Therefore we hope for a church where we take seriously our baptismal vow to nurture all children committed to our care;
where we bring good news to all those places where children are in need;
where adults and children alike share in ministry.
We covenant to act so that this vision may be made real for all children, now and in times to come.
