Almighty God, we entrust all who are dear to us to thy never-failing care and love, for this life and the life to come; knowing that thou art doing for them better things than we can desire or pray for; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Father, be with our friend and sister Micki this morning as she delivers her baby boys. For these long months, we have waited, prayed and watched as the time for delivery neared. Now there is nothing more that we can do, other than place those three precious lives in your hands, where we know they have been all along. It is hard for us to wait and watch, but we know that you have put into place a team of doctors and nurses who are not just competent in their fields, but also servants of your Kingdom. For that we give you praise and thanksgiving. Help us to wait with grace and peace, and, when the time comes, to give you thanks and praise for the outcome.
