Bless my children. And the other children in my family. And my friends’ children. And all of the children at my children’s schools. And all of the children in other schools. And children who can’t go to school. And children who aren’t old enough for school yet. Bless the children. All of the children everywhere. Give them everything they need – food, clothing, shelter, of course. But also give them love and friendship and joy and hope and peace. Let them all have a childhood. And give them all a future. In Jesus’ name, amen.
