Children's Morning Prayer Lord, in the morning I start each day,By taking a moment to bow and pray.Beginning with thanks, I then give praiseFor all your kind and loving ways.Today if sunshine turns to rain,If a dark cloud brings some pain,I won't doubt or hide in fearFor you, my God, are always near.I will travel where you lead;I will help my friends in need.Where you send me, I will go;With your help, I'll learn and grow.Hold my family in your hands,As we follow your commands.And I will keep you close in sightUntil I crawl in bed tonight.Amen. — Mary Fairchild Morning Prayer for Children For this new morning with its light,For rest and shelter of the night,For health and food, for love and friends.For everything Thy goodness sends,We thank Thee, dearest Lord.Amen. — Author Unknown A Child's Prayer for Morning Now, before I run to play,Let me not forget to prayTo God who kept me through the nightAnd waked me with the morning light.Help me, Lord, to love Thee moreThan I ever loved before,In my work and in my playBe thou with me through the day.
