Please join me in praying for the safe arrival of my first grandchild. I'm excited but understandably apprehensive as you can imagine. I hope the labour is without incident and that the child arrives safely.

Thank you everyone.

Prayers for a safe delivery, and that this and future grandchildren will be the blessing to you that I know they can be!

Brilliant news!

Father God, the supreme giver of life, thank you for blessing this new family with a long awaited baby. I pray for a safe delivery, speedy healing for the mum and sleep for the dad. Amen


Psalm 127:3-5
"Lo, children are a heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that has his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate."
