Marian Wright Edelman Prayer

God, please stop injustice,

the killing of innocent children

by violence at home and in faraway lands.

God, please stop injustice,

The killing of innocent children

By poverty at home and abroad.

God, please stop injustice,

The killing of innocent child spirits

By vanity and greed in our land and others.

God, please stop injustice,

The assault on precious child dreams

By neglect and apathy near and far.

God, please stop injustice,

So our children may live

And love and laugh and play again.”

-Marian Wright Edelman
