Prayer for Child

I think this prayer by Jesuit A. Francis Coomes fits our mission perfectly.

Dear Jesus,
My child is growing to a greater independence now in her life. Give judgment to my child in the choice of her dress and in the selection of her companions and activities. Give judgment to me in the parental counsel I must exercise to guide her. Bless my child - who is more your child - and keep all her pleasures clean and wholesome.

Keep the faith! Dena
