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 to You 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 – as 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.

Amen
