Dearest Lord Jesus,

We set aside a few moments today to glorify you and to offer our humble thanks for our precious grandchildren. They are the apple of our eyes, the “crown of the aged” (Proverbs 17:6) who bring us indescribable joy.

More importantly, they are the apple of your eye (Deuteronomy 32:10). You knew them before they were formed in the womb. (Jeremiah 1:5). You have engraved them on the palms of your hands (Isaiah 49:16), and you rejoice over them with singing (Zephaniah 3:17).

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

Amen
