For loving us as your children, showing how to live, and providing us human parents, we give you all honor and praise.
Forgive us for being imperfect parents, who forget birthdays and cannot love like you.
Thank you for loving parents who share our lives and teach us your ways.
In the power of your Holy Spirit, teach us to honor our own parents (Exod 20:12) and to become better parents to our children. Help us to care enough to be present our children’s daily struggles, just like you.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
