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

Jesus Help Me

Today’s Morning Prayer: Jesus Help Me

Jesus, true God and true Man, I thank You for the Grace of being alive this morning; I thank You for the sleep that has refreshed me; I thank You for the opportunity to serve another day.

Jesus, help me in all I do and say today, grant me a smile for everyone I meet today, bless me with kind and gentle words for all I speak with today.

Lord, I come to You with humble trust asking, “Jesus, help me.

In all my doubts, perplexities, and temptations, Jesus, help me.

In loneliness, weariness, and trials, Jesus, help me.

In the failure of my plans; in trouble and sorrow, Jesus, help me.

When others fail me and forsake me, Jesus, help me.

When I am impatient and my cross irritates me, Jesus, help me.

When I am ill and my head and hands don’t work, Jesus, help me.

Always, in spite of my sins and shortcomings, Jesus, help me.

Lord, in Your Mercy, hear my modest prayer of: Jesus, help me.

Amen.
