Based on a Celtic prayer to be prayed while one dresses.

Bless to her, O God,

her body and her soul;

Bless to me, O God,

my faith that other parents will not judge;

Bless to me, O God,

my speech (that I may not say, “You’re wearing THAT?!?”),

and Bless to me, O God,

the choking back of laughter.

Strength and determination of this little person,

her sense of self

and conviction of hipness,

and Thine own path, O God of lovely things,

til she goes to sleep this night.

Thine own path, O God of virtues,

until she discovers the skanky styles.
