My prayers about parenting

From the July 2021 issue of The Christian Science Journal


When I was a little girl, my mom and dad taught me a much-loved bedtime prayer, and we recited it together every night throughout my childhood. It goes like this: Father-Mother God,       Loving me,—  Guard me when I sleep;  Guide my little feet       Up to Thee.
