(Reader: Paulette) “Prayer of the Children”

This poignant song, “Prayer of the Children,” was composed by a family friend, Kurt Bestor. 

It gains meaning day by day and wants to be heard: 


The Prayer of the Children

Can you hear the prayer of the children
On bended knee, in the shadow of an unknown room?
Empty eyes, with no more tears to cry
Turning heavenward, toward the light

Crying, “Jesus, help me
To see the morning light of one more day;
But if I should die before I wake
I pray my soul to take.”

Can you feel the heart of the children
Aching for home, for something of their very own?
Reaching hands, with nothing to hold on to
But hope for a better day, a better day

Crying, “Jesus, help me
To feel the love again in my own land;
But if unknown roads lead away from home
Give me loving arms, away from harm.”

Can you hear the voice of the children
Softly pleading for silence in a shattered world?
Angry guns preach a gospel full of hate
Blood of the innocent on their hands

Crying, “Jesus, help me
To feel the sun again upon my face;
For when darkness clears I know you’re near
Bringing peace again.”

We all are children. We are both the prayer and the answer to the prayer.

Whatever happens during this transition, may we hold the intention to live with peace in our hearts and radiate more Light, more Love, more Trust and more Truth than ever before.

Blessings be upon us all,
