My Dearest God,

  I -- Michele Glance Rooney -- come to You in Jesus' name and give Sarah to You. I'm convinced that You alone know what is best for Sarah. You alone know what Sarah needs. I release Sarah to You to care for and protect, and I commit myself to pray for everything concerning her 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 will when I'm praying for her, but rather enable me to pray that Your will be done in Sarah's life.
  Thank You that I can partner with You in raising Sarah 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 diretions from Your Word and wisdom as I pray to You for answers.
  Thank You, Lord, for the precious gift of my wonderful, sweet, beautiful, loving daughter Sarah. Because Your Word says that every good gift coms from You, I know that You have given Sarah to me to care for and raise. Help me to do that. Show me places where I continue to hang onto Sarah and enable me to release her to  Your protection, guidance and counsel. Help me to live in the joy and peace of knowing that You are in control. I rely on You for everything, and this day I trust my child Sarah to You and release Sarah into Your hands.

"If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!" (Matthew 7:11)
