Prayer from Marian Wright Edelman

 

Interfaith Day of Prayer

May 7, 2020

 

 

O God, strengthen our hope for our children's sake. 

 

Strengthen our courage for our children's sake. 

 

Strengthen our discipline for our children's sake. 

 

Strengthen our ability to work together for our children's sake. 

 

Strengthen our spirit of sacrifice for our children's sake. 

 

Strengthen our faith in Thee for our children's sake. 

 

We ask these things in these most difficult days, and in all the days to come, 

that we might build a nation and world where all children are safe, healthy, loved, ​

and justice abounds.
