A Prayer for the Children – Author Jaz


Protect the children this morning

release your Spirit into the hallways

classrooms and gymnasiums of our schools

Strengthen the parents

Guide the teachers

Bless the kids with a desire to learn

and courage to do their best

Counsel the administration

give them wisdom

Sustain the children this morning

for some have eaten loneliness for breakfast

some have been abused

Place a fire in their belly to strive inspite of the odds

open up their understanding and cultivate pride in their legacy

their history


Instill respect and care for their fellow man

Keep them sweet

Let young eyes see past despair and hopelessness

Lift up heads

Brighten the children’s minds and exhort their light

Give them insight and the ability to see eternity in their choices

Allow them to detect evil and temptation

and run like the wind from it

Foster belief and trust in themselves

Plant self-esteem

Water self-love

Build character

Encourage individuality

Place music in their souls

Stir their hearts

Lead them to a saving knowledge of you

May their full potential be reached

May their destiny breathe

May their lives praise you forevermore.
