A Parent’s Prayer

God please give me the ability
To care for my child’s needs
To feed him and to clothe him
To nurture him when he bleeds

God please give me the strength
To display the qualities that I should
So my child can learn by example
To emulate actions that are good

God please give me the wisdom
To teach my child right from wrong
To build the type of character
That is compassionate and strong

God please stand here by my side
As I walk this road of parenthood
Help me make the right choices
The ones you would if you could
