A Sunday Prayer 15 - Poem by David Harris

Oh Merciful Lord I come to you today
and ask you to look down on our children,
the future of Mankind.
Each one needs your guidance
if they are not to stray
and your protection just in case they do.
The future of this world
lies within their tiny hands.
Therefore, I come to you My Lord
to look out for these children of many lands.
Point the way to kindness and humility,
guide them safely there
so they can learn and see.
Teach them that this mother earth
is not just theirs alone.
It is shared by countless other creatures,
large and small,
that we must protect it
not only for just ourselves,
but also for all the other living things that inhabit it to.
Therefore, my Gracious Lord
will grant this prayer for me today.

    A wonderful prayer to see on Sunday morning or any day for that matter. To pray for our most precious gifts of all, our children, our future, it is crucial that we keep these children in the forefront and let them know each and every day how very special they are. Children of the world, God's precious gift starting with the gift of his only son 'Jesus'. Thankyou for this wonderful prayer David.--Melvina-- (Report) Reply
