Ep. 52 : A Prayer for Weary Hearts & Spring Cleaning

It’s so easy to let “doing good” obscure our hearts, especially when it comes to trying to take care of children. While we so want to do what it takes to raise our children well, we also want for it to flow out of a clean heart. Let’s pray together, asking God to renew and refresh our hearts and those of our children, so we may enter into rhythms of righteousness and justice, goodness, and peace.

About Liturgies for Parents with Kayla Craig

Don’t have the words to pray? Now you do. If you're like most parents, you're exhausted. Prayer feels out of reach. But you're not alone.

With short, welcoming episodes, Liturgies for Parents invites parents like you to take a breath and find comfort in the prayers of another. Each week, you'll hear some scripture, a short prayer, and a gentle reminder of God's presence in your life from Kayla Craig, a mom of four and author of To Light Their Way: A Collection of Prayers & Liturgies for Parents.

In a weary world, Liturgies for Parents offers a nuanced and nurturing moment of reprieve, inviting all who are raising kids to breathe and remember that God is with you. Liturgies for Parents will leave you feeling a bit more centered -- and a bit more rooted in God's big love for you, your family, and your neighbors, too.
