God of all nations, God of all children, / we ask for your mercy on behalf of all the children who do not run in the sunshine but live out their lives in dark corners. / Forgive us for not seeking; forgive us for not looking. / Be with us as we search for new beginnings in caring for these children. / We pray that one day every child might sleep through the night in peace. / Amen.
Ann Weems, Celebrate the Children 1980
