A Parent's Prayer

What an awesome job I have
to love, nurture and guide!
Please, Lord, hear my prayer;
throughout the day be at my side.
Let me be the best parent that I can be.
Open their minds and hearts
that they may always see
the best in themselves and others, I pray.
Give me the strength to do
what I should each day.
Keep these precious ones in my charge
always safe from harm and to you, near.
Assist me to teach them right from wrong
without anxiety or fear.
Oh Lord, guide me now to give them
the benefit of the best start.
Help them grow healthy and happy.
Then, I'll know I've done my part.
