Prayer For Parents

~ unknown

Dear Heavenly Father,
Make me a better parent.
Teach me to understand my children,
to listen patiently to what they have to say
and to answer all their questions kindly.

Keep me from interrupting them,
talking back to them and contradicting them.
Make me as courteous to them as I would have them be to me.
Give me the courage to confess my sins against my children and
to ask them forgivness when I know that I have done them

May not I vainly hurt the feelings of my children.
Forbid that I should laugh at their mistakes
or resort to shame and ridicule as punishment.

Let me not tempt my child to lie or steal.
So guide me hour by hour that I might demonstrate by all I say
and do that honestly produces happiness.

Reduce, I pray, the meaness in me.
May I cease to nag; and when I am out of sorts,
help me O Lord, to hold my tongue.
Blind me to the little errors of my children,
and help me to see the good things they do.

Give me a ready word to honest praise.
Help me to grow up with my children,
to treat them as those of their own age,
but let me not expect of them
the judgements and conventions of adults.

Allow me not to rob them of the opportunity
to wait upon themselves, to think,
to choose and to make decisions.
Forbid that I should ever punish them for my selfish

May I grant them for all their wishes that are reasonable and have
the courage always to withhold a privilege which I know will do
them harm.

Make me fair and just, so considerate and companionable to
my children that they will have a genuine esteem for me.
Fit me to be loved and imitated by my children.
