This week's prayer from Cover our Children was shared by Suzette Rosenblatt, Salpointe Parent Association member:
I pray that you cover my children. Give them the helmet of salvation to protect their minds against messages competing for their attention. Guard their hearts, Lord, from anger, depression, anxiety, loneliness or anything that would make them feel unworthy of love. No weapon formed against them shall prosper. In Jesus' name, Amen. Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Pray for us.
