Source: Verse of the day for Psalm 127:1

Heavenly Father, thank You for the benefits of a good night's sleep, but thank You also for the day by day provision of the gifts and graces, that are ours in Christ - and which are even poured out on us during the night-time hours. Thank You for the work that You have given me to do, during my time on earth. Lord, I know that without You, I can do nothing, and yet I praise You that I can do all things through Christ, Who strengthens me. Keep me from the worries of the day, the fears of the night, and from trying to sort out my personal problems, without coming to You, and relying on Your sufficient strength and promised grace. May I never forget that it is YOU who provides for my daily needs, and I pray that from this day forward, I may do all for Your greater glory and praise. This I ask in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.”
(Psalm 127:2)

Prayer of Dedication to the Lord

Thank You my Father for this precious babe that You have graciously entrusted to me to love and cherish – to teach and to train. Lord it is my desire to dedicate this treasured child back to You, just as Hannah brought her Samuel - to give him back into Your safe-keeping… Keep me from possessiveness and prevent me from clinging too tightly to this little life - but may I give him the freedom to grow without neglecting the responsibilities of parenthood.

Give me godly wisdom as I bring up this little one and I pray that he will grow up into a great man of God and that one day You would use him in a special way to bring glory to Your name.

Keep him from all harm and danger and help me to train him in all wisdom and grace so that he may follow the path of true righteousness.

I pray that he may come to trust in Jesus Christ as Saviour and that he will grow in grace and in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus - for to know You is life eternal. Keep him from the temptations of this life and protect him form the influences of this world system, which can so easily shipwreck the pure faith of a young and trusting child.

Just as the Lord Jesus grew in knowledge and wisdom and in favour with God and man – I pray that in a small way my child my grow in godly wisdom and find favour in Your sight in Jesus name I pray,

Amen
“Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.”
