Prayer for Birth of a Child
I am now in the Sweet Presence of God. I am at one with all creation; I sit in the spirit and the nearness of the God of my Being. In this state of peace I know my true being.
An amazing miracle of creation has occurred in my life: my child was born. This experience has been humbling yet empowering. I am awed with the wonder of this new being that is in the world because of me. I am in a state of grace knowing the incredible co-creative power I have with God, right here, right now.
Bless this child. Bless their health, their heart and their soul. They come into this experience we call life so new, so fresh and so pure. May I be everything to them that they need to have a full and complete journey. May I understand that they have their journey and I have mine as a parent. We are to each other teacher and pupil, pupil and teacher. I will learn as much from them as I teach them.
Lead me in the path of knowledge with my child. Light our way together. Keep us protected and divinely guided in all matters and at all times. May we always feel the presence of God in our lives and may we be blessed.
Help us both to enjoy these early childhood years together. Give me patience and wisdom to do the right things and to do things rightly. May we be happy and full of joy as we spend our days. Bless us richly with health, happiness and laughter.
I am deeply grateful for this child and for all that this child represents in my life. My experience of life and my contribution to the world is changed forever and I am grateful. Thank you, God.
