My husband and I both pray for each of our 3 children every day, and when we pray for our oldest son, Josh, we also pray for his family-Adrianne and Madasyn. We pray with our youngest son, Jase, who is still at home, sometimes 3 or 4 times a day, sometimes just once. Sometimes, we pray in the morning, before we all leave. After Jase asked us to, we have been having nightly devotions. . .not every night, but we try. We always begin and end our devotion with prayer, and then pray again when we go to bed.
Below is the prayer that I posted on Kalyn's birthday, Feb. 3.
There are pictures of her on my sidebar.
My Prayer for Kalyn
I know that Kalyn does "know full well"
that"your works are wonderful",
that she is "fearfully and wonderfully made".
I know that she knows that You have
"plans to prosper" her
and "not to harm" her,
"plans to give hope and a future".
I know that Kalyn does
trust in You with all her heart.
I just pray that she never forgets
any of that for 1 second.
I just pray that on those days
when she feels like she's not good enough,
she'll quickly remember
none of us are good enough. . .
but because of You,
she is always
Beautiful and the Best,
created by You,
for a Purpose,
a life to serve and glorify You.
I pray that she'll build the special relationships
that You give to her,
but that she'll never
look to anyone for more than they can give. . .
for that comfort that
only You can give.
Dear Lord, I know that
You have a very special purpose
for my beautiful daughter.
I know that You are going to use her
to counsel and minister to many people.
I thank You that
You are always with her,
in everything she does.
I thank You
for allowing me
to be her Mom.
As I said, we also pray for Josh, Adrianne and Madasyn every day. There are pictures of them on my sidebar, too. I am working on writing a prayer for them and one for Jase, too.
I do love watching how Madasyn is growing. (too fast, of course, cherishing every minute)
She already knows how to pray, and I know she will continue to grow in her knowledge of God, and I pray that, when God is ready, she will ask Jesus into her heart and develop a relationship with him.
