Parent's Prayer

Almighty and Eternal God,

I place before You my child, name, who is studying at Roanoke College. Send Your Holy Spirit to open his mind to all that is true, good and beautiful.

Help my child to use well the gifts and talents You have given her and to grow in grace, wisdom and knowledge.

Bless him with courage and strength and always seek to do Your holy will. Bless, also, the efforts of Catholic Campus Ministry at Roanoke College as they seek to assist my child and all students under their care.

Open my child's heart to Your presence, show him Your great personal love, and enfold her in Your peace and protection.

Heal our hearts and forgive our failings as we grow into a new relationship. Loving Father, give me the comfort of knowing that, above all, my child is Your child too, sheltered by Your love and held in the palm of Your hand. I ask this through Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
