Prayer for the week:
O God, we place our children in Your Hands. We ask not that You will shield them from difficulty, but that You will give them strength to face it; not that You will protect them from making mistakes, but that they will be able to learn from them; not that their lives will be easy, but that they will deal with its challenges courageously. Be with them when they are vulnerable, protect them from lasting harm, and keep them always in Your love.Amen.
