of All People and All Creation,
hear my special prayer
for Down Syndrome children and adults,
their families, caregivers, physicians
teachers. I understand that
this condition is the most common single cause of
human birth defects.
help all of us to aid in whatever way we can these
individuals who may have delayed mental and social
development, slow learning ability, impulsive behavior
and poor judgment.
with Down syndrome grow
and become aware of their limitations,
they may naturally feel frustration
please respect and cherish them
as among your most loved people, and let me aid
them in any way I can.
I pray that science will one day be able
to alter the chromosomal aberration
which causes this challenging condition.
be different with You
in the kingdom of heaven!
