Prayer of an Abused Child

Friday, December 3, 2010

"Dear Mr. Jesus" is written by Richard Klender and popularized by Power Source, an American contemporary Christian musical group from Bedford Texas. 

Recorded in 1985, "Dear Mr. Jesus" featured group member Sharron Batts, then 6 years old, on lead vocals. The song appeared on Power Source album "Shelter from the Storm". It hit the radio stations on 1987 which is timely, as it came shortly  after the story of Elizabeth "Liza" Steinberg, a 6-year-old New York girl beaten to death by her adopted father Joel Steinberg in November 1987.

The lyrics of  "Dear Mr. Jesus"  deal with child  abuse and is sung from  the perspective of a little girl writing a letter to Jesus, expressing her concerns after seeing a news report about a "little girl beaten black and blue" by her parents. At the end of the song, the narrator concludes her letter by saying , "Please don 't tell my daddy, but my mommy hits me too."

nakakaawang tingnan ang mga kabataang naapi, sa halip na bigyan ng tamang kalinga ng kanilang mga magulang ay natataim pa nilang itoy pag malupitan,
sa ngaun na coconfused ako kung bakit pinili pa ng mga taong mag anak ?
kung ang gagawin lamang nila sa mga ito ay pag malupitan ...
sana ay mabuksan ang isip ng bwat isa na mahalin ang kanilang tanging kayamanan, dahil baka dumating ang panahong maulit muli ang kanilang naturan..

sa pamilya nag sisimula ang pag katao , hinuhubog nito ang tao sa tamang direksyon ng mundo.
