Heavenly Father, look down in grace on all mothers and fathers
to whom You have entrusted the task of establishing the home and of bringing up children in the way You want them to walk.
Bless all parents who year after year carry out their calling for the good of families.
Let them always be ready to hear Your Word, so that they may be rightly guided in their
life and work. For every good You have communicated to us through our parents we give You heartfelt thanks. As
their children we praise You above all for the blessings of our salvation in Jesus Christ, our Savior. Amen
