My Very First Prayers

Dear God,
Help me to grow up good,
and show me the way I should go,

so that I may come at last to heaven

and already feel at home there.

Dear God,
Please hear my prayers

even when I cannot think
of the right words to say.

Dear God,
Are you very grand?

Are you very holy?

Am I allowed to come near?

For I am not at all grand.

I don't really understand holy.
But I feel your love all around me.

By Lois Rock

Some prayers never change.
