Dear Lord, many parents seem overwhelmed by the current economic downturn and demands, while their children are neglected, spoiled or corrupted, and so adopt bad behaviour and make bad choices.
Dear Father, please intervene in all families and aid them in all their predicaments, so that the parents would create balance in their lives to provide for and nurture their children to love and to be righteous, just and productive within and towards the larger society. Enlighten them with Your Holy Spirit to revive, renew and guide them in Your love, in Your way and in Your life and Spirit, so that they may experience Your Presence in their hearts and impact positively on the larger society.
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen
