Prayer of the child
Support me, O God, our Father, in all difficulties to endure,
and over hourly temptations to ascend in purity.
And bless my bread and the air, the pure water also; and give me
childish sleep - pure and sweet, to be strong and robust in
In my young heart, Lord, kind and gentle, generously pour out Your Love,
that I may help all those who suffer and that I may walk in Your new path.
You, Who can do everything and care unceasingly for the small birds
and for all the earthly world, O God, hold vigil over me from Your
Solar arch, send a blessing to my young life, so that I may grow beneath
Your goodness, beneath Your light-filled space, to wake with joy and to
fall asleep in peace.
