Psalm 127:3-5 “Children too are a gift from the Lord, the fruit of the womb, a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children born in one’s youth. Blessed are they whose quivers are full. They will never be shamed contending with foes at the gate.”
Children are no mistake or accident. The day of their birth was long ago determined by God as the psalmist wrote, “Your eyes foresaw my actions; in your book all are written down; my days were shaped, before one came to be.” (Psalm 139:16) So children are a blessing, a gift from God not unexpected and they should be given thanks for to God. What greater joy is there than to be at the birth or hear the news that a baby has been born?!
Yes, babies are a blessing, a gift and a reward! Because of the devaluation of human life done by abortion in our society, some people have other thoughts about babies.
We must continue to pray for and stand for a Culture of Life.

Prayer of Thanksgiving for Babies
O God, we give you thanks for babies
whom you have knit together in their mother’s wombs.
They are truly a blessing, a gift and a reward.
Please bless all families.
Confirm a sense of your presence with them,
and grant them patience and the wisdom to
see this truth.
We pray that their lives may show forth the love of Christ,
as they raise their babies up to love you and all that is good.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
