Mother of God, The Theotokos
Fill the hearts of our children with the inexpressible grace of the Holy Spirit, so that they may love only Thy Son and God, and Thee, O Most Good One, that being inspired by Thee, we may cry to the King of all: Alleluia.
(Following content taken from The Ascetic Lives of MOTHERS - Prayer Book for Orthodox Moms)
"Of all holy works, the education of children is the most holy." (St. Theophan the Recluse)
Dear Lord, bless the education of my children. Help me to instruct them well when they are with me and protect their hearts and minds from any false teaching they may receive while outside of my care. Grant them wisdom, ease of learning, and good homework practices. Help them to be respectful toward their instructors and to always maintain an Orthodox worldview, that they may filter all information they receive through the truth of the Orthodox Faith. Help me to be a faithful teacher, using the time I have be given to train them that Your Word may dwell in their hearts. Amen.
"The primary goal in the education of children is to teach, and to give the example of, a virtuous life." (St. John Chrysostom)
