A Prayer Of Children For Their Parents
O Lord Jesus Christ Our God, Who in Thy Childhood
and youth in Nazareth was submissive and obedient to Thy Most Pure Mother
and Thy holy Provider and Guardian Joseph, leaving us an image of a pure
childhood, well pleasing to God and men; do Thou thyself, O Lover of men,
enlighten me, help me, and inflame me with Thy love, that I may be submissive
in everything to Thee and to my parents who gave me birth, raised me, have
taken care of me, and nourished me.
Help me, O Lord, to always be obedient to them and to honor them, as Thou didst command us, saying: "Honor thy Father and thy Mother, that it may be well with thee and that thou mayest live many
years upon the earth." I pray Thee, O Lord, to keep my parents safe,
and grant them grace, mercy, health, good temper, strength, love, holy
zeal, and all that is necessary and profitable, so they they may bring
us up well in Thy truth, with respect for holy things and for the good
O Lord Almighty, all things are possible to Thee:
help me and my parents, that we may do all that is pleasing to Thee, for
Thou are blessed to the ages of ages. Amen.
A Prayer Of Parents For Their Children
O Lord, God of heaven and earth, Who by thy wisdom has
created man from earth and hast breathed into his face the breath of life,
making him a living man whose life is both temporal and eternal; and Who
didst bless him and say: "Increase and multiply, fill the earth and
rule over it;" and Who in Cana of Galilee through Thine Only Son, Jesus
Christ, didst bless marriage and thereby the bearing of sons and daughters
- with deep humility we pray to Thee: help us by Thy grace always to fulfill
our duties as parents in bringing up our children well.
O Lord God of mercies, have mercy on us and on our
home, and in Thy great goodness, pour out Thine abundant grace over all
our children. Have mercy, O Lord, on us and on our children whom
Thou hast given us.
O Greatly Merciful Lord, Who givest food to the
birds of the sky and to all living things on the earth, Who watches over
the flower that sprouts amidst the rocky cliff: nourish, bring up, and
protect well our children also. Help us, O Lord, to plant in their
souls what is good and useful for the Holy Church and nation, and what
is well pleasing to Thee, that Thy holy name may be exalted through them.
Fill them, O Lord, with the enlightened wisdom and holy understanding which
come down from Thee. Protect them from all the snares of enemies
both visible and invisible. Command Thine Angels as always to be
their enlightened guides and counselors in all good works.
We pray Thee, O Lord, to open their minds, that
they may know thee as much as possible. Amen.
Through the prayers of the Holy Fathers,
O Lord Jesus Christ,
Son of God,
have mercy on us and save us!
Glory Be To God For All Things!
