Joy at a New Birth

A baby is a new beginning, a hope for a better future. It is important to remember God’s role in helping us raise our children to lead good lives.

Loving God,
Morning has come again into our lives.
The sunshine of a new birth brightens
our entire family.
We pray for your help, that this child’s
life will be guided by your ways.
We know that we will not do
everything right, so we ask that you
help us do enough of the right things
so this child will flourish,
always aware of our love,
always aware of your love.
