Give me the patience and wisdom to truly know my son.
To be present for him through all of life’s joys and trials.
To understand his desires and needs.
To love him fully, yet allow him to live his own life.
And when I grow weary, I surrender this work of parenting to you.
Renew my spirit so that I might begin each day as the first.
