Our Heavenly Father you’ve provided this beautiful blessing of a child into my arms and into my life. You’ve entrusted in me to care for this helpless being and to raise her/him up not only in the church but in Christ Jesus. I thank you for the responsibility you’ve bestowed upon me. The unceasing strength that you provide every day so that tasks can be completed and you join baby and I back together safely so that we may devote our free time in becoming more intimate with you dear Lord. I thank you for your mercy, kindness, and constant protection. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
