At Central Baptist Church of Camp Springs, we follow the principles found in 1 Samuel 1:11, 26-28, where Hannah was barren and asked the Lord for a child. "And she vowed a vow, and said, O Lord of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the Lord all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head."
When God blessed her to conceive and weaned her son Samuel, she dedicated him to the Lord. Therefore, we have a special prayer to dedicate the baby back to the Lord.
"And she said, O my Lord, as thy soul liveth, my lord, I am the woman that stood by thee here, praying unto the Lord. For this child I prayed and the Lord hath given me my petition which I asked of him; Therefore also I have lent him to the Lord; as long as he liveth he shall be lent to the Lord. And he worshipped the Lord there."
At Central Baptist Church, your infant child is welcome to be blessed and dedicated back to the Lord. Please use the infantblessingrequestform to arrange your baby's blessing.
May God Bless You and Your New Child.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Lincoln M. Burruss, Jr.
