A Prayer for Our Special Children
(Jan Bentham, OCSB)
Lord of all kindness, we ask your blessing for the children in our care who have such special needs.
We ask for their comfort when their living is hard.
May they experience joy if they ever feel abandoned.
May they be blessed with strength to overcome challenges.
May they be blessed with friendship to allow them to grow in love.
Lord, we pray for all of our children, that they may realize their dreams and live their lives in the fullness of your love and mercy.
May the healing touch of mercy be there for our children.
Let our hands be your hands, our words be your words and let your mercy flow through all of us who have your children in our care.
We pray in the name of Jesus. Amen
