Lord, let our little son become a man of God, and give us the wisdom to show him the way.
May he have a hunger for you, Lord, and Your word.
Help him to experience the fulfillment of knowledge and the reward of hard work.
Let his days be filled with laughter and play, and give him the protection of good Christian companions.
Instill in him the ingredients for a healthy self esteem so that he has the confidence to reach for his dreams and to reach out to others in need.
We dedicate this little one to you and ask you to give him all the richness of a life in Christ.
From the book Prayers From A Mothers Heart by Ruth Bell Graham
