Prayers in the Nursery

Each day, we get closer and closer to Nelson's birthday! Still surreal to think we're about to have our baby boy in our arms! One of our favorite spots to go for prayer is Nelson's nursery. Just this past week, a dear friend that I work with gave us a precious book: Prayers and Promises for My Little Boy by Stormie Omartian. We wanted to share the first one with you today:

Prayer of Gratitude for Nelson {Our Little Boy}

Lord, THANK YOU for Nelson. He is such a wonderful gift to us. Help us to raise him well. May the beauty of Your Spirit be so evident in us that we will be godly role models for him. Give us the communication, teaching, and nurturing skills that we must have. Grow us into being the kind of parents You want us to be and teach us how to pray and truly intercede for his life.

We are grateful that we don't have to rely on the world's unreliable and ever-changing methods of child rearing, but that we can have clear directions from Your Word and wisdom as we pray to You for guidance. We rely on You for everything, and this day we trust our child to You and release him into Your hands. 

In Jesus' name we ask that You will increase our faith for all the things You have put on our heart to pray for concerning our son. 

Thank you for your continued prayers for our growing family during this special time. Words cannot express how much it means to know we are being lifted up! And below are a few more updated photos for you to take a "sneak peek" into our baby boy's nursery...!!! Can't wait to have him here...soon and very soon!
