Fathers’ Manual; For Fatherly Guidance

Lord God, author of all wisdom and Spirit of all true enlightenment teach me how to do my work as a father according to your will. Enlighten my mind that I may understand what to tell my children when it is necessary to give them direction or advice. Give me good judgment to understand true spiritual values and to guide my children in your ways. Give me the gift of your holy Counsel.
The world makes little of your wisdom and your values and is not instructed in your ways. And close contact with the world makes it easy to become dulled to things of solid spiritual worth. Be my guide at all times in the judgements I make and the direction that I must give, that I may be a true father, sensitive always to the divine wisdom that only you can impart to our minds and to our hearts. And, instructed by you, may I impart this wisdom in turn through the direction and help I give to my children.
