A Prayer for Children

"O God, we pray for children from whom we expect too little and for those from whom we expect too much; for those who have too little to live on and for those with so much they appreciate little; for children afflicted by want and for children afflicted by affluence in a society that defines them by what they have rather than by who they are---Your loving precious gift."

Marian Wright Edelman in "Guide My Feet - Prayers and Meditations on Loving and Working for Children"
