I come to You in Jesus' name and give Mark to You. I'm convinced that You alone know what is best for Mark. You
alone know what he needs. I release him to You to care for and protect, and I commit myself to pray for everything concerning
Mark 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, Lord, not to impose my own will when I'm praying
for Mark, but rather enable me to pray that Your will be done in Mark's life.
Thank You God that I can partner with You in raising Mark and that I don't have to do it alone. I'm grateful God
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 son Mark. Because Your Word says that every good gift
comes from You, I know that You have blessed me with Mark to care for and raise. Help me to do that. Show me places where
I continue to hang on to Mark and enable me to release him to Your protection, guidance and counsel. Help me to live in the
joy and peace of knowing that You God are in control. I rely on You God for everything, and this day I trust my child to You
and release him into your hands.
Dear God, please send the Holy Spirit to bless me, your humble servant, Michele Glance Rooney so that I might
be a loving, patient, kind, exemplary mother to Mark.
