A Holy Childhood Thanksgiving Prayer for Children

Loving Jesus, we thank You for children everywhere: those with
blonde hair, red, brown and black; those with skin of every color.
We thank You for those whose lives let them smile and ask You
to bless those who suffer because of poverty, illness or hunger.

We thank You for those with comfortable homes

and ask You to bless those in homes with leaky roofs and dirt floors or those

with no homes at all.

We thank You for those who go to school,

ride bikes and play ball

and ask You to bless those who work all day on the streets or in fields and factories.

We thank You that many

children have loving parents and ask for Your blessing

on those who are orphaned, neglected or abused.

Help us to teach our children to bring Your love and message of

peace, hope and eternal life to all those children who are need of it.
