“A Prayer For Honoring Parents”

May 15, 2019

Father, each spring as we observe tiny featherless fledglings pressed against their mothers in the hollow of their parents’ nest, we’re reminded of the human love children experience from their parents’ safekeeping. We thank You for the loving care You extend to us through the preordained parents who’ve provided for us from birth to independence. Thank You for their model of love, sacrifice, duty, protection, and other virtuous qualities needed to properly raise a family. It has greatly influenced the way we raise our own children.

We also pray for those whose relationship with their parent is a role reversal where they must act as the authority figure when their own parent behaves as a needy or defiant child or when their aging factors disrupt our schedules and way of life. May Your multiplied mercies sustain these caregivers in their ongoing, stress-filled roles so that, above all, You are honored and they find strength and solace even in the midst of the turmoil. Thank You, Father, for our human family, our spiritual family, and for our heavenly family that awaits our arrival on Your appointed day. In the name of Christ Jesus we pray. Amen.
