Heavenly Father, what joy fills my heart for the precious little baby you have seen fit to bring into our family unit and I lift up my voice of praise to You, with a grateful heart, for this little life that has been entrusted to me.
Teach me to be a good and faithful mother and to take the responsibilities of motherhood seriously. Teach me also how to bring up my child to know You Lord Jesus, so that my precious little baby will grow up to accept You as their Saviour… And Lord, You Who loved to welcome the little children into your arms – open Your arms of love I pray for us, and keep us all safe from harms way, under the protection of Your wings of love.
As this little bundle of joy starts to grow and develop, give me wisdom to teach and train – to correct and to encourage and may I be both fair and wise, and combine a balance between correction and encouragement. Guide our little family unit in the ways of peace I pray, and thank You my heavenly Father for the wonderful blessing – that has come for You,
“A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.”
