For the children who have no parents, we pray that we might fulfill their needs.
For children from broken homes, traumatized by divorce, give them assurance that they are innocent and not responsible for their parents’ mistakes.
For children who have lost a parent to death, comfort them and let them know that they can prepare for the end.
For children who suffer abuse, rescue them from harm.
For children who live in poverty, provide them food, clothing, and shelter.
For children who live in the streets or who have run away from home, protect them and give them a place of refuge.
For children who suffer from diseases, cancers, and physical handicaps, turn their hearts toward you to find health in your love.
For children whose parents neglect and fail to discipline, bless them with boundaries.
For children who have been deprived of your knowledge, let them hear that in heaven reigns a good and loving God who cares for all.
For children who grow in wisdom and height, in favor with you and others, we thank you. May they bless many.
And, yes, Father of all, we know that our prayer is for us, that we might show our true religion by caring for these children.
