People: We will pray with all the ease and familiarity of small children to earthly parents.
PRAYER OF INVOCATION
“Gentle Jesus, meek and mild, Look upon a little child; Pity my simplicity, Suffer me to come to thee.” Heav’nly Parent, hear my prayer, Grant me only what is fair As to others you would give: Life eternal let me live. Holy Spirit, fresh’ning wind, Blow away all thoughts of sin, Mind of Christ within me leave; Childlike innocence retrieve.” Amen. Amen.
