A responsive prayer for a Vacation Bible School Service

A responsive prayer for a Vacation Bible School Service:

Pastor:     Our Father, may we all have the hope and energy and strength of our youth,
All:    strengthened by You to run and not grow weary.
Pastor:    From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise.
All:    You use the “weak” to lead the strong.
Pastor:    You used a little child to lead a wolf, a lamb, a leopard, a goat a calf and a lion to live together in harmony.
All:    You ask the little children to come, you do not hinder them, you tell us that the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these!
Pastor:    May it be so today; we pray this in Jesus’ name.
All:    Amen.
