A Prayer My 11 Year Old Son Wrote

This prayer was written by my son and he also picked out the pictures to accompany it.  It was originally posted on my blog, and we received a positive response so I thought I would post it here.

I hope you enjoy it!

Oh Lord, help us at every twist and turn, 
rise and fall, 
and protect us from all of the exiled angels and deceptions.  

 We thank you for our family, our friends, our pets, and are good times in life.
 You are our master, we are your servants, 

You are the king, we are the peasants, 

You are the shepard, we are the sheep.
You are the creator, we are the creations.



  1. What an absolutely beautiful prayer! The pictures he picked are just wonderful too!!!

    God bless your son and your entire family!

  2. A prayer that reflects the child-like faith Christ call all of us to. I loved the pictures too. Thanks for sharing this beautiful prayer.
    God bless.

  3. There is nothing like what comes from the mouths of babes. This was one of the most beautiful things I have ever read. Your son is such a gift, I can imagine.

    God bless,
    Abbey ♥

  4. Noreen,
    This is a beautiful prayer :) Kids understand a lot more than we think they do. This prayer shows a lot of depth for someone who is only eleven. God bless him!
