“When I Hear the Children Pray”

The tenderness and sincerity in the sweet voices of children when they pray is such a moving sound. I recently heard one of our grandchildren praying for Annie regarding a health challenge and as they prayed I remembered going through a similar situation and hearing a “tiny” prayer that I’m sure had “big” results. It inspired the song that is re-posted here.

(Please listen to the end…I think you’ll be glad if you “wait for it!”)  

When I Hear The Children Pray

 

I had a dream, it seemed so real

I was near the throne of God

All around the angels sang

Their hallelujah song

When all at once God stood and said

Let all be silent now

A little voice just called my name

I know that tender sound

 

When I hear the children pray

Oh how I feel every word they say

Let all of heaven know I won’t turn my ear away

When I hear the children pray

 

God closed His eyes and leaned toward earth

With his hand He cupped His ear

Then whispered she’s just four years old

And trusting that I’ll hear

She’s worried bout her Grandpa’s heart

Says he needs my healing touch

Let angels hurry to the side

Of this man she loves so much

 

When I hear the children pray

Oh how I feel every word they say

Let all of heaven know I won’t turn my ear away

When I hear my children pray

 

In my dream an angel took flight

And I felt a gentle wind

Then I woke up, I heard my grandchild say

“Thank You God, amen.”
