O Almighty God,
you gave us the commandment
our father and mother.
In your loving kindness
hear my prayer
for my parents.
Give them long lives
and keep them well in body and spirit.
Bless their labours;
keep them always in your care.
Bless them generously for their loving care for me.
Grant that, through your grace,
I may always be their support
and comfort, and that,
after our life
together on earth,
we may experience the joy together praising you forever.
