Prayer for children

Children's prayers
by Mary Baker Eddy 
From "Poems" in Miscellaneous Writings


To the Little Children

Father-Mother God,
Loving me, —
Guard me when I sleep;
Guide my little feet
Up to Thee.

To the Big Children

Father-Mother good, lovingly 
Thee I seek, — 
Patient, meek, In the way
Thou hast, — 
Be it slow or fast, 
Up to Thee.

Our Father prayer

Our Father which art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil:
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, 
and the glory, for ever.  

Matthew 6:6-13

King James Version of the Bible
