Dear God, I thank You for the gift of this child to raise, this life to share, this mind to help mold, this body to nurt ...
Blessed are you, Adonai our God, Sovereign of the Universe, who sanctified us with your commandments…
Our God and God of our ancestors, sustain this child for her father and mother. Let her be called in Israel…
Holy Ones, see what has happened here! I have become a [father, mother]; a great mystery indeed...
We are humbled by the awesome power of this moment. From our lives we have brought forth life...
Our Father, who art in Heaven with me, Thy name be hallowed within my child. Thy Kingdom come into my womb...
We pray for our child to lead a life rich in the teachings of the Bible. We pray that our child grows into adulthood…
All loving God, you created the human family as a reflection of your own divine life...
This life you have given us is so tiny, fragile, and vulnerable, safe in the womb of flesh and hope…
Our mothers, Rebekka and Rachel, were betrothed and began new lives…
DIDN'T FIND WHAT YOU WERE LOOKING FOR?
Prayer to Allah
I am your servant,
son of Your male servant,
and son of Your female servant;
my forehead is in Your Hand;
Your judgment is exact;
Your decision about me is just;
I ask You by every name of Yours which You have called Yourself,
or revealed in a Book of Yours,
or taught to any of Your servants,
or reserved within Your unrevealed Knowledge,
to make the Qur'an a spring to my heart,
a light in my chest,
that it removes my sadness,
and erase my anguish.
- Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)
