Do you know or see any of your children here? Prayer for Children

For the past 21 years, I have worked with young children. Sixteen of them have been with very young children with disabilities. Some days are tougher than others. Today was one of the toughest. This Lent I have worked on trying to see the sacred and God, even in the toughest of situations.  Perhaps where we might think God is absent.  This afternoon, in the back of my mind I remembered a prayer/poem I read a long time ago. Didn't know the name of it, just that it was a prayer for children. After several Googles I found it. Then I went to Youtube - and found it in video form. This is the prayer I think of as I experienced today. I hope those of you who experienced with me will find comfort and for those of you who did not, will find the prayer meaningful to you in some way. Do you see or know any of the children here?
