Our Children: A Prayer for the World
A beautiful multi-faith prayer for all children, celebrating their imagination and courage to heal the world.
Our children who live on earth,
Holy are each and every one of you.
May good dreams come,
Your way be found,
And heaven and earth rejoice with you.
May you be given
All you need for life
And may you accept our mistakes
As you allow yourself
To make mistakes and grow.
Lead us with imagination
And true integrity,
For yours are the minds, the hearts, and the souls
To heal the world
Now and forever.
