Here is a beautiful Prayer of Parents for their children. We all love our kids so much that we would be ready to die for them. But how many of us pray for our children to our Heavenly Father? We need to pray to our Lord, our God for his mercy and protection. We need to intercede to Mother Mary so that our children do not fall into sin. The world would be a better place if all parents say this prayer for their children. Most importantly, we need to pray to our Father for his mercy, so that the punishment for our wickedness and sins are not cast on our dear children. In this fast moving world where people don’t have time for prayer,I really pray and hope that all parents pray ardently for their sons and daughters.
O Lord God, who have called us to the state of Holy Matrimony and made our love fruitful, we ardently recommend to your holy protection of our dear children.
Preserve them; make them grow as Jesus did, in grace before God and people. Implant in their hearts so great a love for you that they would prefer death to grievous sin. Teach them to put all their trust in you and to walk warily amidst the temptations of youth. Give them a filial devotion to your Holy Mother, that she may keep them free from sin.
We consecrate to you, O Lord, the children you have given us. If it pleases to call them to follow you more closely, give us enough faith to make the sacrifice of them with our whole hearts. Grant that our sins may not be visited upon them. Look upon our prayers and sacrifices on their behalf, and bless them all their days, so that together with them we may be gathered round your throne in heaven for all eternity. Amen
