Here's another sample prayer from this wonderful collection:Prayer for a Joyful Heart
God of All Kindness,
In a single day, my child can be an utter delight or a source of endless aggravation.
No matter what my immediate feelings may be, let me know your joy.
Sustain in me the long view of parenting,
knowing that one stage in life always leads to another.
Revive my sense of adventure so that I stay attuned to each precious day of my child’s life.
And remind me often to be thankful for the gift of being a parent.
With trust in you, I pray.
