look kindly on my child, so marvelously made,
fashioned by you from the womb. Keep fear and trouble far away,
and any hand raised to harm this child of mine.
And when life’s storms come,
give my child rest,as on a mother’s breast.
In days to come- which you alone know –
grant my child eyes of faith for seeing far,
a loving heart for welcoming life,
hope that never despairs,
and a place always at your side. O God,
I thank you for this precious gift,
and pray my child grows wise and well. For more great prayers – here are the links:
