Thanks for Calleigh

Abba, Father, Most Blessed, Most High,
you bestow your greatest blessing on us
when you call upon us
to take part in
the miracle of bringing new life
into the world.

You have blessed again;
you never left blessing.

You fill us with new wonder
at this awesome gift of life,
this precious child,
this beautiful granddaughter,
this wonderful Calleigh.

Thank you for preserving her
and her mother through pregnancy
and labor
and birth.

Thank you for her health,
and intricacy.

Thank you for entrusting her to our care.

Thank you for so ably equipping
her parents to welcome her,
receive her,
care for her,
raise her,
and teach her.

Gentle shepherd,
Giver of life,
we give you thanks for this gift,
and as we cherish her
we ask you to encircle us always with your fatherly love,
in Jesus' name, amen.
