PRAY FOR THE CHILDREN
BY
Anne Hinton Pratt

The world?s a little crazy right now.
So much sorrow and despair.
It?s devastating for the child who bears the brunt of all.
They feel confused, not knowing how a loving family aught to be.
Their confusion turns to anger.
Can?t we hear their hurtful plea?

Pray for the children.
Teach them to love.
Help them to know they have a Father up above.
Pray for the parents.
So they can win.
In bringing back their precious children to Him.

Many children need us right now.
More than ever before.
Let?s open up our hearts to them,
And please not shut the door.
TAKE THEM ORPHANED.
TAKE THEM BRUISED.
HEAL THEIR WOUNDED SOULS.
WE CAN CHANGE THEIR LIVES FOREVER.
WE CAN BRING THEM TO THE FOLD.

Pray for the children.
Teach them to love.
Help them to know they have a Father up above.
Pray for the parents.
So they can win.
In bringing back their precious children to Him.
