I -- Michele Glance Rooney -- come to You in Jesus' name and give my daughter Emily to Your Loving Protection.
I'm convinced that You alone know what's best for Emily. You alone, God, know what Emily needs. I release Emily to You to
love and protect, and I commit myself to pray for everything concerning Emily that I can think of or that You put upon my
heart. Teach me how to pray and guide me in what to pray about.
Help me not to impose my own earthly will when I'm praying for my sweet Emily but rather enable me to pray that
Your will be done in Emily's life.
Thank You that I can partner with You in raising Emily and that I don't have to do it alone. I'm grateful that
I don't have to rely on the world's unreliable and ever-changing methods for child rearing, but that I can have clear directions
from Your Word and wisdom as I pray to You for answers.
Thank You, Lord, for the precious gift of this wonderful, sweet, pretty, smart, happy-go-lucky daughter Emily.
Because Your Word says that every good gift comes from You, I know that You have given me Emily to lovingly care for and raise.
Help me to do that, Lord. Show me places where I continue to hang on to Emily and enable me to release Emily to your protection,
guidance and counsel.
Help me, Lord, to live in the joy and peace of knowing that You are in control. I rely on YOu God for everything,
and this day I trust my child to You and release my sweet Emily into your hands. I ask all of this in Jesus' name. Amen.
