In one of Pope Francis’ general audiences in St. Peter’s Square, the pontiff said that parents have the responsibility to look after and pray for their children.
Parents are God’s appointed guardians, and He has put upon them His trust in raising their children and honing them to become faithful beings.
Here is a prayer for the protection of your children:
A Prayer for Your Child’s Protection
Lord God, we praise You that You are fully in control of all things.
I pray You would protect my child. Keep them healthy and help them to thrive.
I thank You that You know every hair on their head. You know exactly when they rise and when they fall.
Watch over my child in every area of their life and keep them safe. I pray, Amen.
