When Children Pray

When Children Pray

When children pray
They are so sincere.
Right from their hearts,
Without any fear.

They know how to talk
With God as their friend.
They know when to start
And just how to end.

I love to hear them
As I listen silently,
And my faith is lifted
So tenderly.

When children pray
They are so sincere.
Right from their hearts,
Without any fear.
