Parents’ Morning Blessing
Father of mercies, we ask you to bless these children, which, with some uncharacteristically poor judgement, you have entrusted to our care.

Let these children be a beacon in a dark world. Let them be a shining witness for the culture of life. And let somebody come by with another few bushels of hand-me-downs, because the boys all grew out of their pants again last night.
