Prayers for children
Children are flesh and our blood, we, the parents connected with them a deep inner Union. The happiness of children is our happiness, and sorrow because of illness, death and children’s defects for a parent’s heart is the biggest sorrow. To want their children well-being and happiness is as natural as wanting them to himself.
But, unfortunately, it happens that parents care only about temporal, and material well-being of children, seeking all possible means to have their child certainly has achieved in this life.
It is important to take care of obtaining God’s help to his children and pray for them to God. Parent prayer is the most faithful and powerful means of consolidating the happiness of children. There are many examples of how our faith, sincere, heartfelt prayer invisible and parents unexpectedly sends grace of God help their children: healing from sickness, success in learning, separation from the temptations and enticements of this world, an extract from the destructive abyss mired in destructive passions and vices. It helps to remind You about the prayer feat of mother of St. Augustine Monica. St. Theophan the recluse was advised by one of the grieving mother: “Remember the mother of St. Augustine. He wept, prayed, prayed! I begged and cried that Augustine came to his senses and became, as it should be.”
In other of his writings St. Theophan the recluse wrote about a parent’s prayer for children: “children have blessed the Lord to avoid the dangers, you must pray day and night. God is merciful! It has many tools to prevent, what to us and in a head will not come. God all the rules. He is wise, all-good and omnipotence of the Ruler. And we belong to His Kingdom. Why be depressed? He will not give His offense. One should take care not to offend Him and He did not cut us from among Their number”.
We will prove the same in deed, encourages the well-known Orthodox writer N. E. Pestov, our active love to their children by resorting “to a warm, constant, fervent prayer to God for our children and to grant us wisdom in the most important matter of their spiritual education”.
