Bless My Child

by Julie Dortch Cragon

Bless my Child - Julie CragonA Catholic Mother’s Prayer Book that offers mothers a rich variety of prayers for every occasion.

Drawing from the treasury of Catholic prayer, Cragon creates new expressions of many beloved devotions. She offers Novenas for My Child, A Rosary for My Child, and Stations of the Cross for My Child. Prayers to the saints remind us that we are not alone in our parenting, and prayers for growth in virtue help us recall that the Holy Spirit is always at work in our children.

Every mother prays, even if only, "Lord, give me patience!"

Praying is one of the most vital things we can do for our kids. Challenged by her children's school principal asking, "If not us, who; if not here, where; if not now, when," Julie Cragon began praying specifically for each of her children. Just as children need our love at every age, so too they always need our prayers. Cragon provides prayers for every stage of their growth, beginning even before they are born and going all the way to the point when they are becoming moms or dads themselves.
