      Dear Lord,
      This day I pray
      for our children
      learning the hard lessons
      of what it means to be human,
      how to choose the good from the bad,
      how to grow in ways
      that lead to light,
      and love,
      and you,
      I pray for those
      who refuse to choose the light
      in spite of what we long for,
      in spite of what we strive for.
      Give us the patience
      to listen at the right time,
      to speak the right word,
      to be the right example,
      and above all,
      no matter how dark the moment seems,
      not to give up hope.
      Teach us to put our fears
      for our children's welfare
      firmly in your hands,
      trusting you
      above all else.
      Help us Lord
      to see our children with your eyes,
      to pray for wisdom,
      to pray for patience,
      and above all, to love.
      Guide them, we ask you,
      and even though at this moment
      they break our hearts,
      or seem so hardheaded,
      hardhearted,
      or just confused,
      let us realize always
      that you love them,
      and that you will never give up on them.
      Let us remember always
      that you are at their side,
      waiting for them to notice,
      to help them grow,
      this day and always,
      Amen.
