One thing I love about the prayer book is that it gives direction that is simple, precise, and Christ-focused to my thoughts and inward groanings. This is the prayer that I say the most, under my breath, in desperation, at the end of a long day as I fall asleep:
Almighty God, heavenly Father, who hast blessed us with the joy and care of children; Give us light and strength so to train them, that they may love whatsoever things are true and pure and lovely and of good report, following the example of their Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Thank you for sending out this prayer as I prepare to refuse permission for my teenagers to see the movie Deepool having viewed the trailer and read the reviews and ratings. It is going to be a challenging day.
God bless you Gill!
