I posted this last year on Holy Innocents and I cannot think of a better way to recognize this day than reposting it today. I have included the YouTube video featuring The King’s Singers in this post instead of separately as I did last year.
|Prayer of the Children|
Can you hear the prayer of the children
Can you feel the hearts of the children
Can you hear the voice of the children
Dali čujete sve dječje molitve?
Can you hear the prayer of the children?
(words and music written by Kurt Bestor)
O God, we thank You for the blessing of children in the world, for their beauty, innocence and laughter. Help us to remember that when we see a child, we are seeing Your face.
Bless all the children of the world, Lord, keep them close in Your heart. God, bless the souls of the children who continue to suffer day-to-day. Please be with them and heal their broken hearts and rescue them from all suffering and abuse. And we ask You to bless all those children who are close to us….
May we end the wars and suffering of the world by ending the wars and suffering in our own hearts through love and forgiveness. May you all hear the prayers of the children and do your part to make them come true. Amen.
“My children are a beautiful reflection of God’s love.”
