Christopher West’s Theology of the Body

Bedtime Prayers for Children

 

Thank You Jesus for making Mommy to be a woman.  Thank You for making Daddy to be a man.  Thank You for bringing Mommy and Daddy into the Sacrament of Marriage.

 

Thank You for bringing (insert name(s) of children here) into the world through Mommy and Daddy’s love.

 

Help our boys grow into strong men ready to give away their bodies in love.  Help our girls grow into strong women ready to give away their bodies in love.

 

If they are called into the Sacrament of Marriage, please prepare them for their future spouse.  If they are called to give themselves entirely to Jesus and the Church as a priest or religious, please prepare their hearts for that.  Amen +++
