Dear Father up in heaven,

how ungrateful I would be,

If I failed to thank You

for the children given me.


I’ll do my best to teach them

and to raise them in a way,

that they will live life worthy

to return to You one day.


Bless them in their journey

to be strong and never waiver,

but walk proudly in the footprints

of Christ, our loving Savior.


There are no greater blessings

that come from Thee above,

than those of precious children

to fill our lives with love.
