PRAYER FOR MY PARENTS

Loving Father, I turn to you now and pray for my own parents. You chose them from all eternity to give me your gift of life.

They too struggled throughout their lives. They had their successes and their failures. They were not perfect but they did the best they could.

Because of them I came to know of you. They brought me up in the faith. They taught me how to live and how to love.

I ask you to reward their efforts and to crown them with glory and happiness.

May they be there to receive me into your kingdom and the joys of eternal life.

I ask this in the name of Christ our Lord. Amen.
