A Prayer On Child Abuse


Dear God Above
Bless the children that need your love
Bless the lives that are about to end
Caused by a stranger, relative, or even a friend
Children sometimes become confused
That's no reason for them to be abused
Children shouldn't be considered a game,
Nor should your child feel shame
To play with their favorite toy
Like any other girl or boy
Child abuse is a serious crime
But it happens all of the time
If the child is too much trouble
Please send help there on the double
Please don't take the child away
Because someone got angry today
But if these precious children should have to die
Please take them to your home in the sky.

    its a sad subject to touch upon but its reality these poor children didn't ask to be brought into this world God is trusting us with being able to have them to love teach and nurture them, . It's all they ask. People need to stop and ask God for patience instead of going against him.My heart and prayers go out to each and everyone of them. God bless you little ones..! ! (Report) Reply

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
