CHILD'S PRAYER (cont'd)

LORD, it is an odd sort of protection racket to visit these terrors upon thy children and then force us to pray that you defend us from them, but thy will be done, and we trust in thy divine plan.

Yea, keep these unholy terrors, who are thy children as much as we are, from our doors this night, although we wonder if they prayed to you as well, asking for the sustenance of child-meat, which one would you listen to? Just some idle bedtime curiosity which I will now strain to force from my mind.
