Parenting Prayer
 from The Notre Dame Book of Prayer

Gracious God,

You have honored me with the gift and responsibility of children.

At times I feel inadequate to the task—unprepared to manage the challenges that spring up at every stage.

I am in awe of my children, and of you for entrusting them to me, and I desire to be the best parent I can be to them.

Fill me with patience and wisdom, and give me delight and wonder at the miracle that is before me.

Help me to always remember that despite my own shortcomings or the trials that parentingcan bring, my greatest gift is my steadfast love, and my strongest ally is you.

I ask this for the sake of your love.

Parents Prayer for a Hurting Child
from The Notre Dame Book of Prayer

Heavenly Father- Abba,

We praise you and glorify your name.

Thank you for the gift of your Spirit,

Who strengthens us in this time of sorrow and pain.

Thank you for your son, Jesus,

Who suffered even greater pain for us.

We ask you to protect our child.

Guide (name) while he/she is imprisoned

physically, psychologically, or emotionally.

Let (name) experience your love and your healing grace

so he/she can believe in his/her lovability and goodness.

Help (name) accept your son, Jesus, into his/her life.

We know you hear our prayers, Father,

for you have answered us previously in so many ways!

We ask you this in your Son’s name.
