Prayer for Children
God of love,
hear the cries of children around the world.
Hear the mourning, screams, silent voices of fear and pain.
How many tears and how much more blood
will bring us a sense that we are all your children,
no matter what race, nationality, religion, class and
God of mercy,
forgive our sins of selfishness and insecurity
that make us seek self-protection
and power over others first.
Grant us courage today
to listen to your call of protecting, nurturing, and loving
the most vulnerable ones among us
so that we may be a messenger of your peace in the world.
