Gracious God, Giver of all life, We pray for these parents. Give them wisdom and patience. Let Your peace and joy dwell in their homes. Instruct them in Your gospel truth. Strengthen them in faith. Sustain them through prayer. Order their lives by love. We pray for these children. Be gracious to them. Draw them to Yourself. Help them to love and trust Jesus. We pray that You will grow them in faith, So that they might be like arrows in Your hand. For Christ’s sake, Amen.
