Dear Father, hear and bless
Thy beasts and singing birds,
And guard with tenderness
Small things that have no words.

– anonymous — a parent’s prayer

 

Praise be Thou, O Lord our God, Father of all,
for letting me see this new day.
O God, guard my tongue from evil,
and my lips from speaking falsehood.
O Lord, help me to understand Thy teachings,
and to be faithful to all my duties.
Let my prayer be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord. Amen.

O Lord, You know how busy
I must be today.
If I forget You
do not forget me.

– anonymous — a parent’s prayer

 

Praised be Thou, O Lord our God, Father of all,
for giving us the sweet rest of the night.
In peace do I lay me down to sleep,
and may it be Thy will, O Lord
that I awake in peace.
I am in the care of the Lord
when I sleep and when I wake.
In Thy help I trust, O Lord.
