“Lord, you have painted color into my life by giving me a child. Open my ears to hear You speaking through the baby’s babble. Open my eyes to see the eternal soul who lives inside the little body. Give me Your strength for this day. I am a Christian mother and I feel so very vulnerable in this world. Help me to see that I am a front line soldier in the battle for the soul of this child and this is, indeed, a place of great privilege. Oh Lord, I cast myself on you for the sake of my child.”

In the name of the Savior of our Souls; Jesus Christ.  Amen and Amen!
