Prayer of Parents

Heavenly Father, I thank you and praise you for your bounty to choose me to be your representative to my children. Always keep me in this awareness so that I may be highly responsible before you and my children. I accept my children from your hands with gratitude and fear. I thank you so much for these priceless gifts.

Sanctify me so that I can sanctify my children by what I am. Fill my heart with your love so that I may be able to love my children with the supernatural love. Give me the gift of suffering so that I may be willing to take on any suffering to bring up my children. Make me unselfish and deep-rooted in Divine providence, so that I may welcome as many children as God like to entrust me.

(For those who may not have children because of physical unfitness :-
Lord give me the grace to adopt children. Let me love and bring them up for you. Because you are worried about your millions of ‘orphan’ children. Let me satiate your thirst to love them by sacrificing my selfishness. Father I need special grace to have this supernatural love. I am very well aware that it is easier to love one’s own children. With your grace I will love those unloved children. Fill me with supernatural joy, which is the gift for unselfish love.)

Keep my children in holiness. Lead them in right ways. Teach them your ways. Help me to train then in your precepts. Give them wisdom and knowledge. Keep them in good health.

Give me the wisdom to understand the vocation of my children by praying for that intention from the very time of conception (Jer: 1:4-5). Allow me not to become a hindrance for my children’s special calls (to priest hood, religious life). Bless me to help them to discern the state of life to which you call them. Give us the grace to live in such a way so as to join together one day in Heaven and live there in eternity. Amen.

  2. Hi Leo,

    Right after the article, you can see the red words ‘Sharing is Caring’ and it points to a series of icons starting with a blue one with an ‘@’ symbol. Click on that blue icon to send the article to any email ID you like.

    Hope this solves the problem. GBU.

    Thanks for the help I will do as you say. I’m sure my wife will love these wonderful prayers and may others also come to know about these prayers. And get to know our Lord Jesus and wonderful things he is doing for us. Hope and pray that everyone begins and learn to pray so that Our Lord will bless this world and give it peace.
