“Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from Him.” Psalm 127:3
“Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.” James 1:17
Almighty God, thank You that You have made our children in Your image. Your Spirit has made them, and Your breath gives them life. They are Your handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which You prepared in advance for them to do. You have plans for their welfare, Father, to give them a future and a hope. Thank You Lord for Your steadfast love and Your wondrous works.
