Oh, Heavenly Father, please hear as I pray;
Watch over the children as they run and play.
Be with them and guide them at home and at school;
Let each of them know that you think they are cool!
Please help them to do what they know to be right;
And keep them in peace as they sleep through the night.
Though many young children may not know your name;
Please help them to see that you love them the same.
When trouble is brewing and causing much fear;
Lord, help them to know that you’ll always be near.
And when it comes time to choose whether to fight;
Remind them their never quite out of your sight.
While it may be tempting to choose their own side;
God, help them to always seek you as their guide.
When young ones are living in times that seem tough;
Help all your dear children to know prayer is enough.
And lastly I pray that from heaven above;
You shower your children with your perfect love.

This is a beautiful prayer, and a lovely way to portray the needs of children and the love and gentleness of their Heavenly Father. Well done!

Lovely! Its simplicity makes it just right. A very nice prayer for our children.

Really a good little poem here. In proofreading you will want to change this. "Remind them their (should be they're for they are) never quite out of your sight." But this is really good and well written.
