Parents' Prayer For Their Children # 4

Lord God! Thou hast called us to the holy state of matrimony
and hast been pleased to make us parents.
We recommend to Thee our dear children.
We entrust them to Thy fatherly care.
May they be a source of consolation,
not only to us,
but chiefly to Thee,
Who are their Creator.
Be watchful, O Lord;
help and defend them.



Grant us the grace to guide them in the way of Thy commandments.
This we will do by our own perfect observance of Thy holy law
and that of our holy Mother, the Church.
Make us conscious of our grave obligation to You
and bless our efforts to serve You.
We humbly ask this blessing from the bottom of our hearts,
for ourselves and for the children
whom Thou hast been pleased to give us.

We dedicate them to Thee, O Lord.
Do Thou keep them as the apple of Thy eye
and protect them under the shadow of Thy wings.
Make us worthy to come, at last, to heaven, together with them,
giving thanks unto Thee, Our Father,
for the loving care Thou hast had of our entire family,
and praising Thee together through endless ages.
