O Most Holy Savior, we lift up to Your divine protection all the children of the world. Bless babies in the womb with love. Bless newborns with love. Bless toddlers with health. Bless preschoolers with joy. Bless students with happy homes, and bless youth with faith to move mountains.
Lord Jesus, be present in a special way to children and young people who are sick, in trouble, in danger, lost, alone, frightened, or in need. By the power of the Holy Spirit, guide them, guard them, and embrace them with Your loving kindness and mercy.
Let all children experience Your divine care and protection, so they can always call upon Your compassion, confident that You are ever near to hear and answer their prayers. Amen.
