Thank you for creating our children.
Thank you for giving us these precious gifts to love and nurture; to raise up in the way they should go.
It’s such a daunting task that you have trusted us with. Yet you promise to guide and direct us, giving us wisdom and grace.
For as much as we love them, You love them more.
You Word says that You knew each one before You even formed them. How amazing (and comforting) is that?!
You know the very number of hairs upon their head and you have set each one apart; all their days were ordained before one of them came to be.
So please, draw their hearts to yours.
Help them seek you,
to love you with their whole lives,
and to realize the very amazing plan you have for each and every one of them.
In Your Precious and Holy Name we pray,
