This a prayer for the 14 year olds
The innocent, knowledgable,
cusp of adulthood, ready to take on the world
pandemic generation 14 year olds–
of whom my child is one of them
with hormones, and a burning need to change the world
learn everything, help everyone,
and a growing awareness,
God you know
of just how complicated this being human thing actually is.
And when the diagnosis is–
as they say in Big Hero 6,
Puberty, there is a whole world out there for us
to learn from them.
This is a prayer as they hear people fight about the future,
and those frustrations,
which let’s be honest, they were always
always aware of,
suddenly become into focus
because that is a part of growing into yourself.
This a prayer for them, that you will walk with them God,
as they wrestle with it all,
because God, I know I’m not handling everything ok,
so I don’t know how they are doing it.
Be with them,
Help them wrestle
and change the world,
to be what it should be!
Because God, they know when it isn’t!
So please God,
help the 14 year olds–and all the ages in-between.
