The past months have been really trying thanks to Covid-19 as well as so many societal issues. Some days it feels as if the world is coming to an end. Like we are all going to be swallowed up whole.
But, despite it all, I am inspired by the resilience of humanity. Our ability to adapt and change. To fight for ourselves and what is right.
To find the best in the worst of situations. Our real care and concern of others.
I know if you turn on the news or read comments on social media, it might paint a different picture. But I believe that most of us want the best for one another. I know, because I see it daily in my community and my inner circle.
Tonight, I’m sending out a prayer for all children in the world. A prayer that will cover them in what is good and true. A prayer to guide them to inner peace, love and joy.
“God, I ask you to walk and talk with each precious child. To lead them safely along your tranquil shores. To rid them of worry.
Place their thoughts and concerns on those who are truly struggling to stay afloat, the sick fighting to be alive. Fill their little hearts with love and empathy.
God, protect all precious children in delicate situations. Protect them from harm, neglect. Feed their bodies and minds. Wash them in your love and hope. Keep their spirits alive. Let them have joy.
Provide their parents and caregivers with words and actions worthy of your spirit to lead their children.
Guide them in your light and provide them a glimmer of resolve, unity.
Give children strength to navigate these days fearlessly, yet humbly, as well as every difficult situation they face in life.”
