We thank you Lord for being our Lord and Saviour.
We ask you to bless Natalie with the grace, wisdom and strength to lift her eyes to the hills where her help will come from.
Gird her with the breastplate of righteousness and the belt of truth.
Give her strength to carry the shield of faith and to wield the sword of the spirit.
Protect her with the helmet of salvation and may her feet endeavour to spread the good news.
We pray that you will grow her into a child after Your very own heart.
A child that thirsts for Your righteousness and longs to be in Your presence.
Give her Your wisdom and understanding that she will use it for Your kingdom.
We pray that she will delight in You and will live her life in endeavour and anticipation of the ultimate prize that awaits her.
We pray all these in Jesus name, by whose blood we are redeemed.
Congratulations Natalie, daddy and mummy love you!
