Here is a prayer from Doug Wolter that every parent should pray when children are disobedient and wearing on patience.

“Father, I need your help right now.  I need your Spirit to give me patience and wisdom to talk with my child.  I can’t do it on my own.  I need you and my child needs you.  Without you, Jesus, I can do nothing.  So be with me now as I go.  Open up my heart and my child’s heart to you.”

This is a prayer of dependence, reliance and surrender.  It reminds us that ultimately our parenting is futile without God’s intervention.  You can read more here.
