Prayer for Children

O God, our Heavenly Father, Who lovest mankind, and art most merciful and compassionate, have mercy upon our children, Thy servants, (their names), for whom I humbly pray Thee, and commend them to Thy gracious protection. Be Thou, O God, their guide and guardian in all their endeavors. Lead them in the path of Thy truth, and draw them near to Thee, that they may lead a godly and righteous life in Thy love and fear, doing Thy will in all matters. Give them grace that they may be temperate, industrious, diligent, devout and charitable. Defend them against the assaults of the enemy, and grant them wisdom and strength to resist all temptation and corruption of this life; and direct them in the way of salvation, for the merits of Thy Son, our Savior Jesus Christ, and the intercessions of His Holy Mother, and Thy blessed saints. Amen.

Another prayer for the children

O Merciful Lord Jesus Christ! To You I entrust our children, which You gave to us... I ask You, Lord, save them in the ways which only You know. Keep them from vices, evil, pride and may nothing touch their souls that is repugnant to You. But faith, hope of salvation, love give to them, that they be chosen vessels of the Holy Spirit unto You, and may their life’s path be holy and pure before God.

Bless them, Lord, that they may strive to execute Your Holy Will, so that You could always be with them in Your Holy Spirit!

Lord! Teach them to pray to You, so that their prayer be a support, a joy, in grief and comfort in their lives. May Your Angels protect them always! May our children be sensitive to the grief of their close ones and may they fulfill Your commandment of love. And, if they sin, permit them, Lord, to bring You repentance, and You in Your (immeasurable) mercy forgive them. When their earthly life ends, take them to Your Heavenly Residences, to which they may also lead others with them.

By the prayers of Your Ever-Pure Lady Mother of God and Ever-Virgin Mary and Your Saints ... Lord, have mercy and save us.

Glory to You with Your Everlasting Father and with Your Ever-Holy Lifegiving Spirit, now and ever, unto ages of ages. Amen.
