A Child's Prayer
Janice Knapp Perry
Are you really there
And do you hear and answer every child's prayer
Some say that Heaven is far away
But I feel it close around me when I pray
I remember now
Something Jesus told disciples long ago
Suffer the children to come to me
Father in prayer I'm coming now to thee
Pray, He is there
Speak, He is listening
You are His child
His love now surrounds you
He hears your prayer
He loves the children
Of such is the kingdom
The kingdom of Heav'n
We have recently sang this song, at church, twice, and I wanted to share.
It is very much on my mind and heart.
Often I sing this to myself and replace the third person with first person, ME.
I am a child of God, and He hears MY prayers.
We never stop being His child.
He loves, and hears EACH of His children.
Father, help us each take a little time, be still, and know that you are God, and You are Here. In Jesus' Holy name, Amen
