Our Son

Do you have you a moment to pray for this soul before he is born?

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.

Psalm 139:14-16

Father God I thank you for the son you have given Justin and his wife. I pray that your hand will be upon her as she goes through the pregnancy and that all will be well the baby.

I pray Father God that you will fill this boy with your Holy Spirit from birth, that he will be full of wisdom and knowledge and will be a child who brings about much pleasure to his parents.

I pray that you will cause him to be a delightful child, one who will know your presence and direction in his life who will be benefit to society. May he prosper in all he puts his hand to. May he be blessed in all his endeavors and know what your will and calling for his life is.

Thank you for the faithfulness of his parents and may they grow in the knowledge and wonderment of your love for us that surpasses our own love for our children.

Bless them Father in Jesus name.

Amen to Craig's prayer.

Good lookin kid.

I pray for God's rich blessings, protection and love for you.

You probably know it well, but I couldn't resist:

From Psalm 139:13-18,

"...For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you."
