At religious school yesterday, each of the children (6th grade) was asked to
write a family prayer. My son, Daniel, 11 years of age, wrote this one,
which I thought appropriate to share with you in this time of deepening
divisions, angst, and contemplated legal action in our midst, and a looming,
nasty, and likely adolescent set of confrontations to look forward to in

Prayer from the Heart from Home
Daniel Lieber

I pray that our house would say clean,
And everybody in it stay healthy;
That none of us ever be mean,
And if we can't be happy, make us wealthy.

We pray to you, Lord, for world peace,
No more guns, just let us give hugs;
And if that can't happen, at least
Make our dog stop peeing on the rug.

Bless us all indeed.
