A Prayer For Raising Independent Children

Prayer for My Child's Independence
Marian Wright Edelman
Lord help me not to do for my children
what they can do for themselves

Help me not to give them
what they can earn for themselves

Help me not to tell them
what they can look up for themselves.

Help me to help my children stand on
their own two feet and to grow into
responsible, disciplined adults.
