Sunday Sermon: The Prayer of the Children

Becca Praying

This is a picture taken of my youngest daughter Becca the other day while playing out in the snow.  It is hard to imagine not being able to provide for your child.  I feel so blessed to be able to feed, provide health care, and all the modern-day benefits that  I desire to give her. 

I wanted to call attention to a Utah based charity called the Ouelessebougou Utah Alliance. 

Mali has suffered from long-standing drought since the mid-1980s and is among the five poorest countries in the world. The Ouelessebougou (Oo-less-a-boo-goo) Utah Alliance has worked cooperatively with villagers to address the most basic human needs. My MIL recently joined this alliance and so I decided to promote them on Mythbuster Beauty.

This summer my DH and I attended a dinner where we met a very exceptional musician and artist Kurt Bestor.  If you are not familiar with his style of music, he combines elements of a full orchestra with some more contemporary sounds.  He hosts an annual Christmas concert in SLC, and it is beyond description.  He arranges traditional Christmas favorites into something spectacular.  One of his band members Daron Bradford (Woodwind) played 21 different wind instruments during his performance.  He also conducted a ‘Best Vocalist Search” in the state of Utah this year and the winner is a woman with a powerful voice, Erica Richardson

Every year, Kurt Bestor ends the Christmas concert by having his daughter Erika sing one of Kurt’s most loved melodies, “The Prayer of the Children.”

Today, I would like to share this song with you.  May all our prayers make the world a better place and may the prayers of all God’s children be answered.
