A prayer for children – all our children

Parent God,
they are all our children.
Their stories lead the nightly news,
their stories never told,
they are all our children.
Their names on a list,
their names unknown,
they are all our children.
Their faces tweeted,
their faces unseen,
they are all our children.
In Uvalde,
they are all our children.
In Chicago,
they are all our children.
In Kandahar Province, (Afghanistan)
they are all our children.
In Atma town, Idlib, (Syria)
they are all our children.
In Kramatorsk, (Ukraine)
they are all our children.
In Drakpa, (Democratic Republic of Congo)
they are all our children.
In Tultepec, (Mexico)
they are all our children.
In Jenin, (Palestine)
they are all our children.,
In Hlaing Tharyar Township (Myanmar)
they are all our children.
In any place,
they are all our children.
In every place,
they are all our children.
Inspire us to repeat the words
until we understand the words,
believe the words,
until we live the words.
They are all our children.
In Jesus’ name we pray.
Amen.
