Gracious Heavenly Father, how I thank You for our precious little girl whom You have been pleased to send into our little family circle. Lord, I pray that she may come to know the Lord Jesus as her own personal Saviour, and that she may grow in grace and become a truly spiritual woman, who puts the Lord Jesus first, in every area of her life.
Lord, give us wisdom as we teach her and train her in spiritual matters, and Lord I pray that we may be careful to diligently bring her up in the ways of the Lord, for You have promised that if we bring up our children in the fear and nurture of God, when they are old they will not depart from it. And so Lord, I claim that promise for my daughter and pray that you would give us the ability and wisdom to secure her in the knowledge of the scripture, with a clear understanding of Who the Lord Jesus is and what He has done for us all.
Bring into her life friends who have a deep love for Jesus, and a church family that teaches the grace of God and the truth of Your Scriptures. May she also develop a deep desire to know more of You as she grows older. Into Your hands Lord, I place my daughter. In Jesus' name I pray,
