Baby Dedication (March 24th)

 On March 24th (3 months!), Patrick and I had the wonderful opportunity to dedicate John Ryman to the Lord in front of our entire church family.  There were so many families stretched across the stage and it was so special to welcome these babies and families into the church and pray over their lives.  After the service, we went out with friends to celebrate at JR's Grill :)

Thanks to our sweet friend Megan who took these pictures!  She actually just started blogging- head on over {here} and check out her cute blog!

 Gracious God, Giver of all life,
We pray for these parents.
Give them wisdom and patience.
Let Your peace and joy dwell in their homes.
Instruct them in Your gospel truth.
Strengthen them in faith.
Sustain them through prayer.
Order their lives by love.
We pray for these children.
Be gracious to them.
Draw them to Yourself.
Help them to love and trust Jesus.
We pray that You will grow them in faith,
So that they might be like arrows in Your hand.
For Christ’s sake, Amen.
