Rudolf Steiner

Prayers for Parents and Children, by Rudolf Steiner, is an aid for parents, to help guide their children on the journey through childhood. There are verses for every occasion: for expectant mothers as the incarnating soul prepares to be born, for the baby, for children of all ages, as well as prayers for morning and evening and graces at meals. Steiner's lecture at the end of the book gives the prayers' context and helps us understand our relationships before birth, during life, and after death.

Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) called his spiritual philosophy 'anthroposophy', which he defined as 'the consciousness of one's humanity', and the disciplined methods of studying this he termed ‘spiritual science’.  As a highly developed clairvoyant and spiritual initiate, he spoke from his direct cognition of the spiritual world. However, he did not see his work as religious or sectarian, but rather sought to found a universal 'science of the spirit'.

His many published works (written books and lectures) - which include his research into the spiritual nature of the human being, the evolution of the world and humanity, and methods of personal development - invite readers to develop their own spiritual faculties.  He also provided indications for the renewal of many human activities, including education - both general and special - agriculture, medicine, economics, architecture, science, philosophy, religion and the arts. He wrote some 30 books and delivered over 6000 lectures across Europe, and in 1924 founded the General Anthroposophical Society which today has branches throughout the world.
