Mrs Becher's Diary


Prayer for an infant not likely to live

Oh Heavenly Father, who hast given to these earthly parents the gift of a little child, we pray Thee, if it be Thy will, that she may live and grow up to happy and healthy womanhood. But if it shall please Thee to take her to Thyself again in the beginning of her earthly life, grant that she may live and grow in Thy Heavenly Kingdom, and ever behold the face of Him who is the friend of little children, Jesus Christ our Saviour.
