A Child’s Prayer on its Parent’s Birthday.
Almighty Father,
I love Thy goodness,
which has provided me with happiness and comfort,
and I love my dear parents too,
whose kind care and protection are ever around me.
I pray to Thee that Thou wilt bless them
with everything that is for their happiness.
Preserve them long in life,
for they are the guardian angels of my path,
and my benefactors all my days.
Since the time when I was an infant,
they have cared for me,
they have watched and worked for me;
for my body and my mind they have diligently provided.
They have taught me, O my God,
to know Thee,
and to turn to Thee
in love and confidence.
Their affectionate hearts have always sought to comfort me
with tender sympathy in all the events of my life.
Whenever I think how much they have loved me,
how kind and self-sacrificing they have been to me,
I feel that I can not find words enough to ask of Thee
all that I would like to have them enjoy.
But Thou, O God,
dost see the depths of my soul,
and canst read there my affection for my parents;
give ear to my wishes,
grant answer unto my petitions.
Bestow upon my parents Thy richest gift,
a long life full of happiness and of joy and of peace.
Let even their latter days be joyous and cheerful,
free from all pain and grief,
and let them see realized
all the hopes and desires they have
for the happiness and welfare of those they love.
Amen.
