5 Prayers for Child Dedication

Psalm 127:3 says that “Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.” When we receive these gifts from God he expects us to cherish them. He expects us to dedicate their lives to him.

Child dedication to God tells him that we know he is the creator of all beautiful things. It also means that we know that only he can create and that we accept his wonderful addition to our family.

It is true that children are not really conscious of what is happening at the time of dedication. Dedication is really for the parents and the caretakers of the child. It is an important moment between them and God where they promise to raise the child with His values and principles.

Prayers for child dedication are meant to ask for the guidance of the Lord for the child’s life and also ask for strength and favor for the caretakers to be able to train up the child in the way they should go.

Dedicating a child to the Lord is only the first step in their upbringing. You are then responsible for the way the child turns out in the future. The strength and stability of a tree depend on how that tree was cared for, protected, and watered as a small seedling or plant.

You have to straighten a crooked plant before it grows and becomes strong at which point it will be very difficult to straighten. These examples tell us that we have to draw close to our children and train them to live day by day for the Lord. That way he will not be a stranger to them when they grow.

Pray for strength and direction as you begin this journey with your seed. Ask God to help you nurture them and water them with his spirit until they are grown and full of his teachings. He will be their light in the darkness and they will not stray even when you are no longer alive.
