Prayer for Parents

Dear Lord,

Today I pray for all those parents who are sending their kids off to college, either near or far away. As they haul suitcases, boxes, computers, pillows, etc. into a tiny dorm room or to off-campus housing, remind them that they are entrusting their child(ren) to your care and that you are able to take care of them. Give them wisdom as they learn the delicate balance of keeping in touch without smothering--the givers of roots and wings. . .Let them embrace this new phase of life as they learn that parenting never ends--it just changes. Comfort their hearts and fill them with your love and peace as they return to empty nests. Amen
