Prayer for our children





Lord, I place into Your hands the names of our children.
Carve them deeply into your heart so that nothing can take them away.
Protect them if I am forced to let go of their hand.
Be Your strength always greater than their weakness.
I am not asking that you spare them any sorrow,
But that you are their comfort if they feel alone or afraid.
Keep our children within Your Alliance
In Your name.
Never let them go too far away from You
At any time of their lives.
Lord, I place in Your hands the names of our children.

(by the ARNAUD family, translated from French)

  1. This is a very beautiful prayer. The last line really spoke to me--"Lord, I place in Your hands the names of our children."
