In heaven, united forever, may we delight in your presence for eternity.
Pray this prayer to entrust your children to God’s care.
God, my Father, I offer you my children;
You gave them to me. They belong to you always;
Help me raise them in your ways. I ask you
to guide them into your glory.
Lord, may egotism, ambition, and evil
never dissuade them from the narrow path.
May they have strength to fight against wrong
and may righteousness be always the goal of their actions.
In this world of so much evil, Lord,
you know our weaknesses
and how evil often glitters and attracts;
but you are with us
and I place my children under your protection.
Give them light, strength, and joy on this earth, Lord,
so that they live for you during this journey here below;
and so that in heaven, united forever,
we may delight in your presence for eternity.
A Mother’s Prayer for Her Children
Holy Mother Mary,
Who by virtue of your divine motherhood,
Hast become mother of us all
I place the charge which God has given me,
under your loving protection.
Be a Protecting Mother to my children.
Guard their bodies and keep them
in health and strength.
Guard their minds and keep their thoughts ever holy
in the sight of their Creator and God.
Guard their hearts and keep them pure and strong
and happy in the love of God.
Guard always their souls and ever preserve in them,
faithfully, the glorious image of God
whom they received in Holy Baptism.
Always Mother, protect them and keep them
under your Mothering care.
Supply in your all-wise motherhood,
for my poor human deficiencies
and protect them from all evil.
Queen of the Most Holy Family,
Pray for us.

Continue to watch over them.
Provide for all their needs of body and soul.
Pray, likewise, for me,
for my husband,
and my whole family,
