For a more enriching experience,
go down on your knees to pray or take it one step further
and prostrate yourself (lay face down) on the floor while praying.
Father, I admit, it has taken me a while (years in fact) to realize that I am to become like the little child that was held up as a model for the disciples. I understand that this is not because of any supposed innocence of a child but because of a child's complete dependence on, and trust in, their parents. So must I, as a child, be dependent upon and trust in You, my Father. I also understand that I must not neglect or influence any of Your children (young or old) to stray from you or that which is right and Good. Thank You for this reminder, to always remember that before anything else, I am Your child. I Love You!
Through Jesus Christ's Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face. ~Amen
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke
Matthew 18:1-5, 10
1 At that time the disciples approached Jesus and said, "Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?"
2 He called a child over, placed it in their midst,
3 and said, "Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
4 Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
5 And whoever receives one child such as this in My Name receives Me.
10 "See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father.

Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
