I saw this graphic floating on Facebook. It is called, A Parent’s Prayer. The author is unknown. The graphic does have Jesus Lovers on the bottom corner of it.

A Parent’s Prayer

Thank You for my children,
Lord; I know they are a gift
From You. Daily I need Your
strength and wisdom to train
them in the way they should go.
Give me patience and a joyful
heart; let me be an example of
Your love and forgiveness.
Thank You, Father for the honor
of being a parent. Amen.

A Parent's Prayer
A Parent’s Prayer

As a parent we must be thankful to God for children. Children are a gift from God. We truly do need His strength and wisdom in raising our children. There can be trying and difficult times. We must also train them up right and in the way of the Lord and not in the way of the World or Mans way. Patience, is something really needed when raising a child and something great to ask God for. But be careful this this request, because God just may give you what you ask for. Most of the time it is through going through situations to build us. We must learn our children are not perfect and they will sin too, just like us. We must forgive them. If God forgave us, we should also forgive them too. It is also great to thank God for the honor or being a parent.
