為學習障礙兒童禱告

A prayer for kids with Special Education Needs (SEN)

第十一週:6月4日 – 6月10日
Week 11 : Jun 4 – Jun 10

禱告經文 Scriptures:
箴言Proverbs 14:26-27
敬畏耶和華的,大有倚靠,他的兒女,也有避難所。敬畏耶和華,就是生命的泉源,可以使人離開死亡的網羅。
Whoever fears the Lord has a secure fortress, and for their children it will be a refuge. The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, turning a person from the snares of death.
申Deuteronomy 29:29,30:9-14
隱祕的事是屬耶和華─我們神的;惟有明顯的事是永遠屬我們和我們子孫的,好叫我們遵行這律法上的一切話。
The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.
你若聽從耶和華你神的話,謹守這律法書上所寫的誡命、律例,又盡心、盡性歸向耶和華你的神,祂必使你手裏所辦的一切事,並你身所生的,牲畜所下的,地土所產的,都綽綽有餘;因為耶和華必再喜悅你,降福與你,像從前喜悅你列祖一樣。我今日所吩咐你的誡命,不是你難行的,也不是離你遠的。不是在天上,使你說:『誰替我們上天取下來,使我們聽見可以遵行呢?』也不是在海外,使你說:『誰替我們過海取了來,使我們聽見可以遵行呢?』這話卻離你甚近,就在你口中,在你心裏,使你可以遵行。
Then the Lord your God will make you most prosperous in all the work of your hands and in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your land. The Lord will again delight in you and make you prosperous, just as he delighted in your ancestors, if you obey the Lord your God and keep his commands and decrees that are written in this Book of the Law and turn to the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.

「諸天述說神的榮耀.穹蒼傳揚他的手段。這日到那日發出言語,這夜到那夜傳出知識。」詩篇19: 1-2

親愛的天父,今天我們將所有特殊教育需要(SEN)的學生帶到你面前,他們包括聽障、視障、肢體殘障、智力障礙、專注力不足/過度活躍、自閉症、言語障礙、特殊學習困難(讀寫困難/資優)等學生。根據2018年的统計,香港現有大約四萬名SEN (特殊學習需要)的學童,他們分佈在幼稚園、中小學及特殊學校。

親愛的主,祢是創造萬物之主,願祢的榮耀、祢的智慧,臨到這些兒童、他們的家庭和所有服務這些特殊兒童的機構。我們為教育署、社會福利署、各專業服務等機構並有關教學老師、輔導老師、治療師等人士禱告, 求你加能賜力給他們,幫助他們更明白特殊兒童和家長的困難和需要,能以用基督的愛心去擁抱他們。

掌管生命的主啊,我們特別把這群養育特殊兒童的父母交托給祢,求聖靈打開這些父母心中的眼睛,使他們從心靈沮喪、了無生機之中看見出路,因為基督榮耀福音的光照亮人心眼,靠著主耶穌的大能生命可以有轉機。求主除去一切攔阻他們接受救恩的障礙,求主讓他們時刻感受到祢的慈愛,得著鼓勵,以致家長們能夠常常充滿正能量去引導子女們行在真理中,又求主賜予豐足的供應給每位特殊兒童的家庭,使他們在重重壓力中得著釋放。又願主的愛厚厚澆灌這些父母的心裏,讓他們懂得如何用祢的方法關愛自己的特別子女,口出恩言,建立子女的自信和正確形象。

求主你讓這些特殊兒童常常有“與上帝個人相遇”的時刻,讓兒童知道祢是天地間的創造主,宇宙中的主宰,也是看特殊兒童為寶貴的。又求主醫治特殊兒童,奉耶穌基督名字宣告主祢寶血的能力,可以矯正學習裡面的障礙,使他們身心靈可以恢復正常健康的成長。

願聖靈充滿所有這些父母、老師、治療師得智慧,讓他們學習倚靠祢的能力,使他們有方法和智慧如何教導孩子,好讓所有訓練過程和操作步驟變得輕省,懂得如何引導孩子學習、如何糾正他們的行為,且有十足的愛心和耐性,不致堰苗助長。

又求主讓各部門能與家長合作,一起同心配搭教導孩子,賞罰適宜,合作無間,藉著凡事禱告,經歷主的供應,不論是人際關係,資源分配,都得到主的”恩寵”。

甚願香港政府更多為這特殊群彰顯公義和憐憫,在社會福利上、教育政策上持續優化改善,共同合作,繼續造福弱勢及特殊兒童,且按需要增加特殊學校、中心及其它資源,以幫助這些兒童能適應社會和學習生活知識,又甚願更多教會積極同心回應,關顧特殊兒童家庭的心靈需要,建立他們的生命,用行動支援這些弱勢家庭,使天父得榮耀!
奉主耶穌聖名祈求,阿們!


A prayer for kids with Special Education Needs (SEN)

Lam Sik Ching, Rebecca
Senior Special Educator

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.” (Psalm 19:1-2)

Dear Heavenly Father, we bring all SEN kids to Your presence today. These kids have various difficulties including hearing impairment, visual impairment, physical disability, intellectual disability, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism, speech disability, dyslexia and kids who are gifted. According to statistics, there are around 40,000 school kids with SEN in Hong Kong. They can be found in kindergartens, primary and secondary schools, as well as special schools.

Dear Lord, You are the Creator of everything. May Your glory and Your wisdom come upon these kids, their families and all organizations that are providing services to them. We pray for Education Bureau, Social Welfare Department, all agencies that provide professional service, as well as the teaching staff, counselling teachers and therapists. We pray that You grant them extra strength and ability, and help them better understand the difficulties and needs of SEN kids and their parents, and that they can embrace them with the love of Christ.

Lord, the keeper of all lives, we entrust to You in particular the parents who rear the SEN kids. We pray that the Holy Spirit opens their hearts so that they can see the way out of their frustrations and hopelessness. For the glorious Gospel lights up the mind of men and life can be different with the power of Lord Jesus. We pray that the Lord removes every obstacle that blocks their way to salvation. And they can feel Your love always and be encouraged, so that they can be filled with positive energy to guide their children in the path of righteousness. May the Lord bless these families with abundant supplies and set them free from the pressure from all sides. We pray that the Lord’s love be poured out generously into their hearts so that they can know how to love and care their special children in Your own way. And with kind words, they can build up their children’s confidence and proper self-image.

We pray for these SEN kids too. May they have moments of “personal encounter with God” always. Help them understand they are precious in Your eyes, and You are the Creator of heaven and earth and the Lord of the universe. We pray for the Lord’s healing of these kids. In the name of Jesus Christ, we proclaim the power of Your precious blood to remove every obstacle to their learning, and that the body, the mind and the soul could be restored for a healthy growth.

May all these parents with SEN kids, teachers and therapists be filled with the Holy Spirit, so that they will count on Your power and have skills and wisdom to teach the kids. All training process and operational steps will become light and easy, and they know how to guide the kids in learning and correct their misconduct. And they will have love and patience in full, and would not push indiscreetly for their growth.

We also pray that all related units can work with the parents well, and they can work in partnership and work toward seamless cooperation, to teach the kids with good reward and punishment system. In everything they will pray and experience the supply of the Lord. And in interpersonal relationship and resource allocation, they can be blessed by the Lord.

We would like to see the government show more mercy and righteousness for this special group. In social welfare and education policy, pray that they can seek continuous improvement and work together to bless this group of disadvantaged and special children. And based on demand, they need to increase the number of special schools, centres and other resources, to help these children adjust to the society and learn living skills. We pray for more churches to rise up to the call actively and in one mind, to care for the spiritual needs of families with SEN kids, build up their lives, and take action to support these disadvantaged families, that glory be given to our Heavenly Father.

In the holy name of Lord Jesus we pray. Amen!
