Prayer of a Christian Father for his Wife

I came across this beautiful prayer and wanted to share it with you. It’s perfect to pray on the Feast of the Holy Family.

O God, who, next to me, has entrusted my children to my wife, hear my prayer for her. How great is the influence which she as mother has over the children; grant that she may be a faithful and true Christian mother to our children. Give her the spirit of piety and the fear of the Lord; fill her heart more and more with love for thee and for her children, that she may bring them up for thee, and by word and example lead them to a truly Christian life, and to eternal happiness. Assist her that she may not sink under the sacrifices and difficulties of her maternal vocation; visit her with the consolations of thy grace. Bless her labors in behalf of her children, that they may grow up pleasing in thy sight and be our joy and consolation. Thou art a liberal rewarder; reward then my wife with grace and eternal life for what she does for our children, who are also yours. Amen.

    Thanks for this prayer. I printed it out and taped it on the back of my “Built for Battle” image I keep on my desk.

    Beautiful prayer. I notice I normally just by myself before retiring so this might be a good one to try together. Thanks Adam.
