Lord…As much as I will love this child, You already love this child more…
Plant this child like trees by streams of water, rooted and grounded in love, yielding fruit in season with leaves that do not wither.
Make your Word richly dwell within, teaching and admonishing this child, growing thankfulness in the heart of your child.
Stir up love for others, patience and kindness, Keep this child humble, ever seeking you and rejoicing in your truth.
May this child ask in faith, believing that you are the giver of all that is good.
Call this child to you, open this child’s eyes, so they might place their eternal hope in you…Amen.
PROVERBS 22:6 – NIV
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are oldthey will not turn from it.
