Parent God, whose Child the Lord Jesus Christ commended children to be the kingdom of God; help us to understand our children as they grow in years, in the knowledge of your world. Help us to be patient, compassionate, towards them and guiding them in the proper paths to face the world courageously.
We pray for our elders for their great contributions towards the society and ministry of the Church. Be to them a sure and certain hope of the life you have prepared for them in the hereafter.   AMEN
