Hump Day Prayer . . . The Gift of a Child

Dear God,
Thank You for the gift of this child,
the life that s/he will share,
the mind that his/er parents will help mold,
the body that his/er parents will nurture,
& this spirit that his/her parents will enrich.

Help them to never betray this child’s trust,
dampen their child’s hope,
or discourage their child’s dreams.

Strengthen his/er parents, dear God,
to help this precious child become all you mean him/er to be.

Let your grace
& love fall on him/er like gentle breezes
& give him/er inner strength
& peace & patience for the journey ahead.

In the name of Christ Jesus. Amen
