Lord Jesus,

We praise You for all the blessings of this life, especially our precious grandchildren. They are the apple of our eye, and they bring us indescribable joy.

More importantly, they are the “apple of Your eye” (Deuteronomy 32:10). You formed their inward parts; You knitted them together in their mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13, paraphrased).

You know then they sit down and when they rise up; You discern their thoughts from afar. You search out their paths and their lying down and are acquainted with all their ways (Psalm 139:2-3. paraphrased).

Thank you, LORD, for “every good and perfect gift is from above” (James 1:17), and that includes our grandchildren.
