Almighty God and merciful Father,
We thank and praise you for having forgiven our sins through the blood of your dear Son, Jesus Christ. We thank you for uniting us to Christ through your Holy Spirit and for adopting us as your children.
We pray, O Lord, that you will always govern and guide Hudson through every moment of his life. May he, through the working of your Spirit, be ever nurtured in faith and godliness all his days. Help him see your fatherly goodness and mercy which surrounds us all. Make him a champion of righteousness under the direction of Christ our King and High Priest. Give him the courage to fight against sin, grant him grace to overcome the wiles of the devil, and keep him from the dominion and domination of the world.
Above all, let him be fully dedicated to You all his life and never know a day where he did not know the only True and living God.
