Parents praying

From the January 1988 issue of The Christian Science Journal


One of the most vital issues for those of us who are parents is, Have we accepted the commitment to pray for our children? And next in line for me is, How can I do it systematically and joyously, with fresh inspiration? Clear motives Undergirding the commitment to prayer is a clear understanding of why we pray for the children. Perhaps the answers to this question seem obvious, but, in my early days as a parent, the obvious answers didn't inspire me, and too often they induced a sense of urgency about my child.
