God’s garden is adorned by a wide variety of plants and trees. At the sight of fragrant roses, coloured lilies, dainty Margaret’s and dancing Daisies, the passer by may tend to overlook the small and delicate Jasmines. They are hidden but nevertheless add in their humble way to the charm and beauty of the garden by their fragrance. They contribute their own note to the music of the universe, singing the praises of gods eternal beauty. This is what Come To Me Daily Children’s Prayer Group had been doing during the past three years in the Archdiocese of Bangalore and church in India, Contributing its own note on the keyboard of God’s glory. History is sometimes made up of a few acts of the great, but it is more often shaped by the many acts of the small. This is the case of Come To Me Daily Children’s Prayer Group.

Origin

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.” Mathew 19:14

Listening to the promptings of the Holy Spirit Sr.Margarita Sister Of St.Charles Borromeo discerned the will of God and moved with compassion at the sorry state of the people during pandemic took a bold step to form a children’s prayer group.

Under the able guidance, motivation, support and encouragement from Rev.Sr.Aleena the Superior General of the sisters of St. Charles Borromeo and Rev.Sr.Wilma Rebello the Provincial Superior of the sisters of the Charles Borromeo western province the prayer group was originated.

Come To Me Daily Children’s Prayer had its humble beginning on May 12th 2020, on the feast day of Our Lady of Fatima, on which the Blessed Mother appeared to the three shepherd children of Fatima in Portugal. Children joined everyday virtually to intercede for the whole world.

It was born to enrich the spiritual lives of children, to intercede for the broken world and strengthen their faith amidst these calamities and deaths in the world.

Children are well trained, mentored, accompanied, and given ample opportunities in the prayer group to grow in their intimacy with Jesus, to conduct praise and worship, to preach the word of God, give importance for their personal prayer, reading and memorising of the Word of God and how to utilise their talents and time for the glory of the Lord.

This prayer group was started with 5 children but today we have nearly 100 of children who join everyday virtually along with their parents and grandparents at 5pm to 6pm for the past three years without any fail as prayer warriors for various spiritual activities from all over India.

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8” The beauty of this prayer group is by the power of the Holy Spirit children conduct offline and online retreats for other children in various retreat centres, schools and parishes wherever Come To Me Daily Children’s Prayer Group is invited. They are very blessed, and spirit filled prayer warriors and God experienced Evangelisers who proclaim and witness the gospel wherever they are.

Jubiliant song of praise ring in the hearts of the members of Come To Me Daily Children’s Prayer Group as we look back with gratitude to God for his presence and manifold blessings showered on us at all times to grow in the deeper experience of Jesus.

In our hearts we realise that joy is rooted in proclaiming the gospel and praying for the church and the whole world.

They are hundreds of testimonies to proclaim how God has worked miracles in the life of children, parents, and other people through this children’s prayer group.

We have powerful intercessory group praying for various intentions.
