God of the Children

Blessed God of the children
Who first loves those who are weak
Who hurts when they hurt
And hungers when they hunger
Help us to be prayerful
Not just in our thoughts and words
But in our actions
That we may not have generalized prayer for food
Btu will feel them ourselves
That they might go to bed with a full belly
God, you have blessed us so abundantly—
Help us to bless as well
You say our will provide for all our needs
And sometimes we forget that you provide through us
Open our hearts to the pain in this world
And our eyes to recognize the need in your world
That we might do our part
Doing unto that one child
as we would have them do unto us
as you have already done unto us
Help us to love them
As you have loved us
That we might honor you
Through our actions
For the health and welfare
Of your children everywhere.
