The Prayer of the Children

 

The Prayer of the Children

by Kurt Bestor and Sam Cardon

Can you hear the prayer of the children?
On bended knee, in the shadow of an unknown room
Empty eyes with no more tears to cry
Turning heavenward toward the light

Crying jesus, help me
To see the morning light-of one more day
But if i should die before i wake,
I pray my soul to take

Can you feel the hearts of the children?
Aching for home, for something of their very own
Reaching hands, with nothing to hold on to,
But hope for a better day a better day

Crying jesus, help me
To feel the love again in my own land
But if unknown roads lead away from home,
Give me loving arms, away from harm

Can you hear the voice of the children?
Softly pleading for silence in a shattered world?
Angry guns preach a gospel full of hate,
Blood of the innocent on their hands

Crying jesus, help me
To feel the sun again upon my face,
For when darkness clears i know you’re near,
Bringing peace again

Prayer for Bangladesh

ph2007111501054.jpg

Heavenly Father, who in Your great love and compassion hears the prayers of all Your people and is ever-present with those who walk in the shadow of death. I offer my prayers for all who suffer loss and devastation due to the Bangladesh cyclone disaster.

Grant peace and happiness, for those who have died.
Heal those who are injured.
Comfort those who mourn.
Give hope to those whose hope has been taken away.

Unite the local communities together in love and prayer.
Help them care well for each one another.

Strengthen the will of the world community to pray and generously give help and aid.
Inspire us to show compassion and caring in practical and abundant ways.

Bless the earth.
Bring peace and harmony to the lands, to the sky and to the waters.
Let the earth be calm.

For the sake of Your Son, Jesus Christ, who suffered and died for the life of the world.

Amen.
