Praise Your holy name for the blessing of our precious baby that You have so graciously given to us. You told us to be fruitful and multiply and I thank You that You have blessed me by making me fruitful – truly, children are a blessed blessing from the Lord.
I remember reading that You blessed Sarah with Isaac and Hannah with her Samuel and now in Your grace You have blessed me with my own precious blessing.
I bless Your name for ever and ever and pray that my little one in turn may be a blessing to You. Give me wisdom to bring up this little one to love and to trust You as their Saviour – Guard and guide – keep and protect us all in the days that lie ahead and bring us all into Your everlasting kingdom of Your dear Son – as we wait for that Blessed hope – the glorious appearing of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, in Whose name I pray.
