A Baptismal Prayer
Dearest Newest Catholic Max,
This morning, before the sun rose, you woke me up to eat. It's not unusual for me to spend a moment or two (the ones I'm awake) in thanksgiving for the gift you are to me. Today however, only hours before your Baptism, a different prayer was on my heart.
Today, as I held you in my arms and thought about what this day held for you, I prayed for you like I have never prayed before. I prayed for you to have the gift to hear God's voice clearly. I prayed for you to always have the courage to follow whatever He says to you.
I want you to know this because these prayers did not come from me...especially in the wee hours...but from the Holy Spirit. I want to assure you that your Daddy and I take this sacrament very seriously and that we will do our very best to live up to the promises we made today. I also want you to know that I will continue to pray these prayers for you throughout your life.
I can't wait to see where God takes you. I love you, Mama
