Prayer to an Infant in Heaven

on November 17, 2011

It has been one month today since our Veronica was called home to heaven. She has been so much on my mind and heart. I find myself continually sharing with her as I go throughout my days and asking for her holy and pure intercession for her mother and family.

I stumbled across this lovely prayer on a blog that I follow and thought that today would be a fitting day to share it here…

To an Infant in Heaven

My darling (mention the child’s name) you are now in joy in the presence of our God; and in your spotless innocence, which he loves, you can speak to him with a voice that he will heed. You are still my little baby and will surely regard the prayers of your mother, who bore you. So with confidence, then, I speak to you. Intercede for me to obtain the favor that I here ask as a mother through her child who stands before the throne of God (here mention petition). But if what I ask is not according to the wisdom and loving designs of almighty God for me and others, then ask Him to grant what is best according to His good pleasure and to give me the wisdom and faith to conform my will to His.

Amen
