A Parent's Prayer for Their Children

O Father of mankind,

who hast given unto me these my children,

and committed them to my charge to bring them up for Thee,

and to prepare them for everlasting life:

assist me with Thy heavenly grace,

that I may be able to fulfil this most sacred duty and stewardship.

Teach me both what to give and what to withhold;

when to reprove and when to forbear;

make me gentle, yet firm;

considerate and watchful;

and deliver me equally from the weakness of indulgence,

and the excess of severity;

and grant that, both by word and example,

I may be careful to lead them in the ways of wisdom and true pity,

so that at last I may, with them,

be admitted to the unspeakable joys of our true home in heaven,

in the company of the blessed Angels and Saints.

Amen.
