Thinking about and praying for the Innocent children who are abused, abandoned, homeless, detained, deported, hungry, sick, and scared around the world .... and how the injustices, racism, disparities and inequities in our country harm our black and brown children ... and how our immigration policies are impacting children at our borders ...

Lyrics: 

Prayers for the Children

pray with me...

prayers for the children
especially ones born with
black or brown skin
when others do not care
what struggles they are in
and all children
living in poverty
and those beaten outside
or within

pray with me...

prayers for the children
especially ones who cry
alone at night
when others do not come
to hold them tight
and the children
who are always hungry
and those sent to war and
who must fight

pray with me...

prayers for the children
especially ones who are
homeless in streets
where they must beg and steal
for something to eat
and the children
imprisoned or accused
and ones put down by
those who teach

pray with me...

prayers for the children
especially ones caged in
detention camps
far from parents in crowded
filth where they are at
and all children
who are hurting and ill
and political pawns in
powerful hands

pray with me...
prayers for the children....
oh Lord....prayers for the children....
prayers for the children now



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

So beautiful and so needed. My heart aches for the children and we should pray for them. I have been trying to help some people in Uganda who lost their entire school to a flood. So many children need so much.

So many in power speak of their thoughts and prayers going out to those with blighted lives and then do nothing...this excellent piece should be mandatory reading to make them think and pray again and then actually do something to alleviate the suffering.

If we are to have a better world, they are our only hope. And yet the need is so great. Would like to add music to this one.

Wow! Powerful. Are you picturing this with a choir sound? Great set of lyrics.
