Prayers for my son

A prayer for my son

Father in heaven,
Help me to be a good parent.
As I dwell in your love, may I give my own son an ocean of love to abide in.
As I receive your forgiveness, may I always be ready to forgive my own dear son and offer him a new day.
As I hope in you, and look forward to the future knowing your guidance.
May I gently protect and lead my own beloved son into a place of hope and vision for his future.
Lord, help me to be a good parent.

A birthday prayer for my son

(a prayer of thanks and protection)

Dear Lord,

It was only yesterday I held a new life in my arms.
I thank you for my wonderful son,
He is so precious to me.
And each year that passes
I grow more amazed at who he is becoming.
On this his birthday I give thanks for him,
And ask that you continue to protect him and keep him
On each day in the year ahead.

Love is a symbol of eternity. It wipes out all sense of time, destroying all memory of a beginning and all fear of an end.

Prayer for my son in school

Dear God,
I can not always be with my precious son,
Yet I trust in you and know you are beside him each day.
Walk close to him at school, Lord.
Help him to laugh, play, learn, have fun and make friends.
I trust in you.
