This last Sunday was our Baby Dedication service. On Sunday, 39 families participated. Here are links to the full liturgy as well as a photo blog of the baby dedication at all of our campuses. Here is the prayer that we pray for the families involved:
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.
And here is part 1 and part 2 of the gift booklet that we gave to each Sojourn family that dedicated their children. Please take time to read through each family’s testimony. As a church, we’ve committed to pray for these kids and their parents. I hope this little booklet will be your guide.
