Dear God, may this child come to know and love you from childhood. Cover this child with your love and let your glory be upon him or her in the womb. When the child comes to this world, let us shower him or her with the Christ-like love. Father, may this child love you with all his mind, soul and strength. May the soul of this baby follow closely behind you and may your right hand uphold him or her. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.
