 We pray for the children who …

… sneak popsicles before supper,

… erase holes in their math workbooks and can never find their shoes.No Fear


We pray for the children who …

… don’t know how to run down the street in a new pair of sneakers,

… are born in places where we wouldn’t be caught dead,

… and, have never been to the circus.


We pray for the children who …

… bring us sticky kisses and fistfuls of dandelions,

… hug us in a hurry and forget their lunch money.


We pray for the children who …

… never get dessert or have a “safe” blanket to drag behind them,

… watch their parents watch them die,

… can’t find bread to steal,

… don’t have any rooms to clean up,

… don’t have pictures on anybody’s dresser, and

… whose monsters are real.


We pray for the children who …

… spend all their allowance before Tuesday,

… throw tantrums in the store and pick at their food,

… like ghost stories and shove dirty clothes under the bed,

… never rinse out the tub and get visits from the tooth fairy, and

… whose tears we sometimes laugh at and smiles can make us cry.


We pray for the children who …

… whose nightmares come in the daytime,

… will eat anything and have never seen a dentist,

… aren’t spoiled by anybody, and

… go to bed hungry and cry themselves to sleep.


We pray for the children who …

… want to be carried and for those who must, and

… we never give up on and for those who don’t get a second chance.


We pray for the children who …

… we smother, and

… will grab the hand of anybody kind enough to offer it.

    Yes, we pray, our only hope in all things. Reminds me of the song, Bless the beasts and the children, a while back. TJ
