Prayer Guide

“‘You took your sons and your daughters whom you bore to me and you sacrificed them as food for the idols to eat. As if your prostitution not enough,

[Ezek 16:20 NET]

Do ye hear the children weeping, O my brothers,

Ere the sorrow comes with years?

They are leaning their young heads against their mothers,

And they cannot stop their tears.

The young lambs are bleating in the meadows;

The young birds are chirping in the nests;

The young fawns are playing with the shadows;

The young flowers are blowing toward the west:

But the young, young children, O my brothers!

They are weeping bitterly.

They are weeping in the playtime of the others,

In the country of the free.

~ Elizabeth B. Browning ~

Father of all, I pray that I may always love children. May I never forget that I wanted things and needed things when I was a child, and that the help and neglect which I received then told in my life. Make me interested in the purposes that will help the progress of the child to-day, and may I realize that the child does not need my casual charity as much as it needs my permanent justice. Amen.
