JEHOVAH YAHWEH, you have witnessed the rebelliousness of youth since the very beginnings of time. You know the parent’s (and family’s) anguish and helplessness over the actions of their child. Please help us to transform our anger and frustration into loving care for our children who have gone astray. Help us begin to mend our broken fences and heal our broken hearts. Bless our children and help them to mend their ways.
Heavenly Father, our children are your greatest gift, and our biggest challenge! At times they are truly distressed, and yet we are unable to find a peaceful resolution. In our helplessness and frustration we turn to you for your wisdom asking, What would my Heavenly Father do in His infinite wisdom and beneficence? Lord, fill our hearts and minds, and share Your loving wisdom with us! Heal our children of their pain, make us as loving and wise a parent, as You are for us Your children.
We bring before you our children, struggling with their studies. Holy Spirit, let thy bright beams arise, dispelling the darkness from their minds, and opening their eyes. Revive their drooping faith, remove all doubts and fears, And kindle in us and in them the flame Of everlasting Love. Amen!
