Prayers for each and every "Christ Child". Make us ever (MORE) mindful of their needs...

If all you do is pray, they are all doomed! make a diffrence anyway you can! By action not by prayer!

I didn't know one precluded the other.

I agree, Doug. Action and prayer must go side by side.

Thanks for the reminder about every child too. I think we forget to see the world that way too often.

JCF said...

Tristan, you're right.

Which is why the (Benedictine) Rule is "Ora et Labora": Pray AND Work. [And why the Epistle of James says that faith w/o works is dead]

JCF, I know that, but I also know the majority of Christians I know think that prayer is all they need to do and their works are lacking in the extream!
