Lord Jesus, I come to you in my time of need, to beg Your mercy for my children as they go forth into the world. Please look after them and surround them with your unbreakable hedge of protection. Keep them safe as they bear witness to Your all encompassing love and mercy. As these children are exposed to things in the world that they know are wrong, I pray for the strength to resist temptation and to stay strong in their faith in You, O Lord. Amen.
