Prayers of the Children

The Glorification of Mary by Botticelli

Prayers of the Children:
All Divinity Blessed

Children on the altar
Petitions in hand
Teachers standing there
Microphone in hand
With utter sweetness asking:

For the sick and the lonely
For the elderly and those departed;
Remember us, Lord and Mary, and
For New Life just started;

Heal us,
Gift of Peace,
Be our salvation
Ever Rising 
Under dear feet beneath
Grant lasting pardon;
Mercy, the gift of your hands,
We offer our joys, hurt, our sufferings,

So our transformation 
For lifting others
We aren't changed alone,
Save by loving, caring for each other:
these offerings for
We are praying
  each other Home.
