Lord, thank you for children.
Thank you for the blessings of responsibility. Please sanctify us as we teach, love, and protect those little ones you have blessed us with.
God, help us to encourage and discipline when appropriate. Grant us wisdom and patience.
Let Your Word always be on our lips and in our actions so our children may find us a living example of faith.
Thank you for the sweet moments and the difficult ones — all the opportunities for refinement in parenthood.
Thank you for your perfect example.
