Christendom’s leading film critic and all-around Decent guy Steven Greydanus and his wife Suzanne have welcomed their seventh child, Matthew, into the world.
May the Lord God almighty, who through the earthly birth of his own Son has filled the whole world with joy, so bless Steven and Suzanne that the child He has given them will always bring joy to their heart. Amen.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, You were begotten before all time, and yet desired to become an infant in time. You are delighted with the innocence of tender years. You lovingly embraced the children who were brought to You, and blessed them. In the blessings of Your sweetness, go before this infant and grant that no evil may mar his intellect. Grant too that, growing in age, wisdom and grace, he may ever be pleasing to You, who live and are King and God with God the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, for ever and ever. Amen.
