Prayer of Blessing

LORD, we ask that You would hear our prayer and adopt our son as Your son so that from an early age Nathanael Joseph DeLagneau may know who he is in You—a redeemed sinner in Christ Jesus.

May he know that when Your Spirit resides in him, You will neither leave him nor forsake him.

May he be a godly young man bold, yet humble in his faith declaring the truth in love as a servant-leader for his generation in spite of the suffering and persecution he will endure.

May he be sensitive to the Holy Spirit prizing and acquiring wisdom beyond his years by etching Your Word onto his heart so he may not sin against You.

And when he does sin and is sinned against we pray he will make great haste to repent and forgive knowing he’s been forgiven and serve You all the more knowing that it’s by Your grace through faith he’s been saved!

May he walk freely and bravely in the joy ‘n peace Your Spirit brings using his gifts and abilities creatively to best serve You and bless others.

May he have a passion and knowledge for you, O God, that’s neither scathed nor succumbed by the deceptive and destructive philosophies of this world.

May he delight in whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and admirable, as well as the seminal medieval virtues of justice, wisdom, temperance, courage, faith, hope, and love so he will flourish in this life and the next.

And may he be obedient to the call You have for his life in fulfilling the Great Commission and finishing the race (of faith) strong, so he may one day hear those wonderful words—“Well done, good and faithful servant!”

Life Verse

5 O Lord, you alone are my hope.
I’ve trusted you, O Lord, from childhood.
Yes, you have been with me from birth;
from my mother’s womb you have cared for me.
No wonder I am always praising you!

My life is an example to many,
because you have been my strength and protection.
That is why I can never stop praising you;
I declare your glory all day long.

Ps 71:5-8, NLT
