Here is a beautiful prayer which can be recited by children seeking the intercession of St. John Bosco, the Patron Saint of School Children.
O Almighty God, Who hast given me my father and mother and made them an image of Thine authority and love, and hast commanded me to love, honor and obey them: grant me, through the intercession of St. John Bosco, grace to observe faithfully this law. Grant me grace to profit from their admonitions, and make me respect all those who take their place. Deliver me from pride, rebellion, stubbornness, evil temper and laziness. Make me diligent in all my duties and patient in all my trials, so that one day I may be happy with Thee forever in Heaven. Amen.
