A Parent's Prayer
(a prayer for the protection and well-being of your son or daughter)

Lord, we pray for our children
knowing that you care and watch over each of them completely.
Please encircle them with your great love and protection.
Guide their pathways and walk beside them always.
Minister by your Holy Spirit into their hearts and souls
and bring your peace.
Bless them with goodness, come open their minds
to the wonder and beauty of life.
Sow into their lives great heavenly treasure
so they might carry light in their hearts
and joy in their spirits.

Lord, may they understand more and more
of your love for them.
May they appreciate themselves as you see them -
unique and precious.
Father, please come and cover our parenting
with your amazing love.
In Jesus name,

A prayer for children to say at bedtime

Bedtime Prayer for Children

Dear God,

it's me just here to pray, and talk to you about my day.
To thank you for the fantastic things that made me smile and laugh.
To let you know the bad things, that made me sad, that I found hard.
To tell you about the boring things, that made me cross or grumpy,
and share with you my worries, which made me quiet and sulky.
I know, no matter how I feel, you love me still the same.
So, help me sleep and have good dreams, ready for another day.
