Thank you For Your Love-Gift To Me

Dear Lord Jesus, You said, "let the little children come to me for of such is the kingdom of heaven." Lord, I bring each one of my precious children to You and offer them into Your safe-keeping.

Thank You for the amazing privilege of being a parent, for I know that children are a love-gift from the Lord. I bless you each day for the precious gifts that You have so generously laid in my lap. Thank You for each of their lives and may their lives become a fruitful love-offering to You

Develop in me the willingness to give my children as a love-gift back to You, and I pray that You will take and use each one of my children in a way that is pleasing to You. May they become giants in the faith, yet humble in spirit, gentle in heart and willing to listen and learn.

Thank You, for the wonderful example of Abraham, a man of faith who trusted You sufficiently to be prepared to give his own dear son up to You as a love-offering to You. I pray that like him, I will continue to trust all my children into Your care, knowing that no matter what happens, You are working Your good work in their lives.
