Prayer for Moms and Dads

Loving God,

Cast your gleaming light upon all of us Moms and Dads
as we walk the most demanding journey of all.

Pour into us unimaginable love and ready us
to nurture the children You entrust to our care.

Send insight and understanding
as little ones grow.

Send judgment and wisdom to know
when to praise and when to correct.

And when they are grown, bestow on us the peacefulness that
we did as we were able and that it was enough.
