Take a look at this short but meaningful prayer.

As we arrive at the fourth week of Advent we focus on peace. This might seem a bit of tall order if you’re a busy parent running around after little ones. However, the type of peace we’re looking to achieve is more of an inner peace — to be at peace with ourselves and each other. But again, does a parent ever have peace of mind with all the worries we have for our kids?

One way to achieve this is to offer up prayers to God to protect our little ones. And this short prayer shared by Katherineelainephotography does it so simply and eloquently that it’s no surprise it’s proving so popular on social media.

So take a minute to listen to the prayer and try introducing it into your own daily prayers. You’ll soon feel peace wash over you, knowing that God is watching over all His children, including you!
