This is an incredibly insightful prayer I have printed out and placed above my desk.. I believe this is a great inspiration and encouragement for parents and teachers..
Lord, I ask not about miracles, and not the mirages, and the strength of each day. Teach me the art of small steps.

Make me an observant and resourceful, that the diversity of everyday life in time to stop
on discoveries and experiences that made me excited.
Teach me how to properly dispose of time in my life.
Give me a subtle flair to distinguish primary from secondary.
I ask about the power of restraint and measures that I have on life fluttered and slid,
and intelligently planned throughout the day, could see the tops and give,
and at least sometimes would find time to enjoy art.
Help me to understand that dreams can not be a help. No dreams of the past or dreams of the future.
Help me to be here and now and accept that moment as the most important.
Protect me from a naive belief that everything in life should be smooth.
Give me a clear consciousness that the complexity of defeat, the fall and failure
are just a natural part of life, through which we grow and zreem.
Remind me that the heart often argues with reason.
Send me the right time for someone who has the courage to tell me the truth, but tell her loving!
I know that many problems can be solved if we do nothing, so teach me patience.
You know how much we need friendship.
Let me be worthy of the most beautiful and tender gift of Yours.
Give me a rich imagination to the right time, at the right time, right place,
silent or speaking, give someone the necessary heat.
Do me as a man who knows how to reach those who really “down”.
Protect me from fear to miss something in life.
Let me not what I myself wish, but what I really need.
Teach me the art of small steps. 

Antoine de Saint-Exupery.
