Heavenly Father, I remember now Something that Jesus told disciples long ago. "Suffer the children to come to me." Father, in prayer I'm coming now to thee. Pray, He is there. Speak, He is listening. You are His child. His love now surrounds you. He hears your prayer. He loves the children. Of such is the kingdom, The kingdom of Heav'n.

22: BLESSING OF ADELLE ELIZABETH DOCKTER Dear Father in Heaven, by the authority of the Melchizedek Priesthood, which we hold, we take this infant into our arms to give her name and a blessing. The name by which she shall be known throughout her life and upon the records of the church is Adelle Elizabeth Dockter. Heavenly Father, at this time we bless Adelle that her body will be healthy and strong; that it will serve her well throughout her life. We pray that Thou wilt bless her with intelligence, and with creativity, that she will have the ability to pursue whatever interests she chooses to pursue. We pray that thou would bless her with character, that she will be honest, and have integrity, and will show gratitude to those that will have the opportunity to serve her. We bless that she will be faithful in fulfilling whatever callings that she is given in this life. We pray that Thou wilt also bless her to be able to discern from the things that are of Thee from the things that are of the world. We bless her that she will always know that she can come before Thee in prayer, whenever she needs a blessing from Thee. We also bless her, Father, that she will one day find a righteous young man to take her through the temple, and that she will be able to have an eternal family herself. We live Thee, Father, and we are grateful for Adelle. We say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen. Blessing Given by: Rhyan Dockter on May 15th, 2011 in Provo, Utah Assisted by: Aaron Dockter, Chris Dockter, Parker Gibbs, Bryan Gibbs, Gary Dockter, Ken Gibbs, and Bishop Robert Mower
