一个父亲的祈祷

于中旻

 

神啊!求你将判断的权柄赐给王,
 将公义赐给王的儿子。
他要按公义审判你的民,
 按公平审判你的困苦人。
大山小山,都要因公义使民得享平安。
他必为民中的困苦人伸冤,
 拯救穷乏之辈,压碎那欺压人的。
太阳还存,月亮还在;人要敬畏你直到万代。(诗篇72:1-5)

Build me a son, O Lord,
who will be strong enough to know when he is weak, brave enough to face himself when he is afraid.

Build me a son,
whose wishes will not take the place of deeds... Lead him, I pray, not in the path of ease and comfort, but under the stress and spur of difficulties and challenges. Let him learn to stand in the storm; let him learn compassion for those who fall.

Build me a son,
whose heart is clear, whose goals will be high, a son who will master himself before he seeks to master others; who will reach into the future, yet never forget the past.

And after all these things are his, add, I pray,
enough of a sense of humor so that he may always be serious yet never take himself too seriously...

Then, I, his father will dare to whisper: "I have not lived in vain."
