What first of all should pray for parents? Saint Theophan the recluse wrote: « It is obvious that the main desire of parents should be directed to the upbringing of the child as a living member of the Militant Church of Christ. And the Lord will fulfill this prayer in due time. But when this time comes, we are not given to know; there are cases when the Lord did not lead young men in a straight path, but saved them from pride, allowed them to temporarily deviate from the straight path and fall. Let in such cases parents do not despair, but even more diligently plead with the Almighty».
The Saint attached special importance to his mother's prayers: « Motherly love is not only an image, but also the very act of God's providential care for us. Without it the spread and preservation of the human race is unthinkable. A mother who does not love children is an outcast from both God and men».
