Classroom Prayer


My prayer, oh Lord
Is for You
To touch these children
In every way possible
In the midst of noise and clamor
In the silence
And in the mist of tears
And vulnerability

Let me somehow be
The guardian of their fragile selves
Defender
Of their future destiny
Show me the way.

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
