Lead us to a place… the prayer

“Palomita de Paz”
RED Project #7

Sharing a beautiful song… The Prayer. I’m sure you’ve heard it before… although this 
version is sung by a child (Rhemma Marvanne)… so angelic. God bless those that mourn and those that are are afraid. My favorite verse “When shadows fill our day…Lead us to a placeGuide us with your graceGive us faith so we’ll be safe”.

The Prayer (lyrics)
I pray you’ll be our eyes
 And watch us where we go
 And help us to be wise 
 In times when we don’t know
Let this be our prayer when we lose our way 
 Lead us to a place 
 Guide us with your grace 
To a place where we’ll be safe
La luce che tu daiI pray we’ll find your light 
Nel cuore resteràAnd hold it in our hearts
A ricordarci cheWhen stars go out each nightL’eterna stella sei
Nella mia preghiera 
Let this be our prayerQuanta fede c’è 
When shadows fill our day
Lead us to a place 
Guide us with your grace 
Give us faith so we’ll be safe
Sognamo un mondo senza più violenza 
 Un mondo di giustizia e di speranza 
Ognuno dia la mano al suo vicino 
 Simbolo di pace e di fraternità
La forza che ci dia 
We ask that life be kindÈ il desiderio che 
And watch us from above
Ognuno trovi amorWe hope each soul will find 
Intorno e dentro a sèAnother soul to love
Let this be our prayer
Just like every child
Need to find a place 
Guide us with your grace 
 Give us faith so we’ll be safe

In memory of the children

Matthew 19:14

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, 
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
 
In memory of the children. 12/14/12 

I painted this piece “Ascension of the Innocents” a couple years ago after a dream I had. In that dream there were souls of children ascending to heaven carrying red balloons. I remember that at that time I was very fearful of death and I’d like to think that this dream came to me because it showed me that death was not something to be feared. That God in his mercy carries souls to heaven in the most peaceful of ways…. especially the souls of innocent children. We are all God’s children regardless of age… he loves us all just the same.
