Parents’ Prayer to the Holy Family-children in the love and fear of God

Jesus, Son of the eternal Father, we most fervently implore You to take our children under your special care, and enclose them in the love of your Sacred Heart. Rule and guide them that they may live according to our holy faith and may never waver in their confidence in You and may ever remain faithful in your love. Mary, blessed mother of Jesus, grant to our children a place in your pure maternal heart. Spread over them your protecting mantle when danger threatens their innocence. Keep them firm when they are tempted to stray from the path of virtue; and should they have the misfortune to fall, raise them up again and reconcile them with your divine Son. Holy foster father St. Joseph, watch over our children and protect them from the assaults of the wicked enemy and deliver them from all dangers of soul and body. Mary and Joseph, dear parents of the holy child Jesus, intercede for us that we may be a good example and bring up our children in the love and fear of God and one day attain with them the beatific vision in heaven. Amen
