In the fear of the Lord one has strong confidence, and one’s children will have a refuge.

Practices


On car trips: Say a prayer for safe travel and return home. For example: “May the angel Raphael


guide us on our way so we may return to our home in health, in safety and in joy.” Afterward have every- one in the car make the sign of the cross, the mark of their baptism, on another person’s forehead.


Nighttime: Lighten up worried children by praying with humor: “From ghoulies and ghosties


and long-leggedy beasties, and things that go bump in the night—good Lord, deliver us!”


Before school: When walking to the bus or before heading out the door, start part of the St. Patrick’s


breastplate prayer: “Christ be with me, Christ within me, Christ behind me, Christ before me, Christ beside me, Christ to win me, Christ to comfort and restore me.” Then have your child make up a few verses: “Christ in my hair, Christ with a dare. Christ helps with math, Christ makes me laugh.”


Blyth is the father of two young children and is married to a pastor. He does other things, kinda sorta, when nobody has skinned a knee.
