Heavenly Father, thank you for all the children around the world. You have created these children these children in your image and likeness. They each have a special mission.

Teach me to be generous as you have been generous with me. Teach me that all I am and have are gifts from you and gifts, Lord, are meant to be shared. Show me the joys of generosity. Help me to understand that others, perhaps unknown to me, depend on me for help.
Lord, bless those who have been so kind in sharing their Time, Talent, or Trust with (name of program or community) that their efforts may reduce the negative effects that drugs and violence are having on our children, family, and community.
And Lord, encourage volunteers to come forth and serve the Red Ribbon Program that they may safe-guard the most precious gift you have entrusted to us… your children.
We pray in God’s name… Amen
Loving Father of all – we come to you in prayer this day on behalf of all children in this community and beyond. Growing up in today’s is a challenge in itself; growing up drug-free and refraining from violence is becoming an overwhelming challenge to so many. Temptations are becoming overt as evil grows within the hearts of drug dealers. We pray for your Fatherly protection for each and every child. Provide them strength in body, mind, and spirit to mature drug-free. Lord in your mercy – hear our pray.
