A beautiful prayer that I just had to share.
Source: CHILDREN AT CHRISTMAS
We pray to you Father,
That all of them will feed,
For it is nice to celebrate Christmas,
When sound in body and mind,
When you have had your Christmas meal,
On turkey and pudding you’ve dined.
Think of all the children,
Who celebrate alone?
Who have no families?
No where to call there home,
There is nothing to celebrate,
For those little girls and boys,
No reindeer or Father Christmas,
No stockings to fill with toys.
So remember when we celebrate Christmas,
In a stable far away,
Was born a little baby,
And in a manger lay,
The shepherds and the three wise men,
Who travelled from a far?
They looked up into the sky,
And followed a bright new star.
They knelt down by Jesus,
To worship the new born King,
With Gold, Frankincense and Mere,
The three wise men did bring,
So send your thoughts out to the children,
For it should be a special day,
Let us thank the lord for what we have,
And to him we should say.
Father take all the children,
Surround them with your love,
Send your light to protect them,
From your glorious world above.
This world is full of profit,
Men that are full of greed,
What about the children,
Who die, if they don’t feed?
It would be nice,
If this time next year we see,
That all the children of the world are fed,
And that everyone was free.
