There’s a new kid on the block, Father, a new member of the team, an addition to the department, an added heir to the covenant. Help us welcome them with all the love, acceptance and encouragement in us. Open our hearts and arms to assist them however we can. Begin the bonding process that builds and strengthens lifetime relationships. Let the transition lead to seamless distribution and completion of duties. Let others know we are Christians by the love shared among us. Show us how to support one another to glorify your name. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up.” (Romans 15:2 ESV)
