Prayer for the Children of Nigeria
Oh Lord, the children in Nigeria are starving to death.
We join together with all Catholics, with all Christians,
with all people of faith.
Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists.
All who pray to you. The One God,
Lord of all humanity.
We pray that these innocent children
will have the sustenance, food, medicine, care
so that they may grow and flourish and help their communities
and all whom they may see who also will need the help that they need now.
We pray that the religious peoples of the world may come together to provide food
for these children,
and that the nations of the world may unite to send them what they need
And together we pray Amen. Let it be so!
