O Lord,
do not let William
grow up too quickly
may he make no Decisions
without consulting me first.
may he still find his greatest Pleasure
in my company.
I know he is
developing new interests,
and making new friends,
but I do want to share in
every part of his Life.
remind him constantly of
all that he Owes to his parents.
Prevent him from
growing too independent.
and if he must have a Girl,
let it be that
sweet little Cynthia Black.
prayer from a natural parent David Head
Redding, David, ed., Prayers I Love. Strawberry Hill Press, 1978.
