Almighty God, author and creator of all life and all faith. I praise You for you are loving and compassionate, powerful beyond all comprehension, slow to anger and quick to forgive. Thank You for offering us Your only Son, who bore all my sins so that I may come before You now.
My whole life I dreamed of the day when I might get to be a mommy and so many times I wondered if it would ever happen at all, yet You gave me the desires of my heart. A loving husband and two beautiful sons, I wouldn’t trade any of them for all the riches of the earth.
When I look at them, so tiny yet fully formed, I am amazed at the works of Your hands. How could someone so small possibly make it in this world? Yet they are fully alive and I praise You. I pray that even now they are coming to know You, that they would come to know the fullness of Your love for them. I pray that their hearts would over flow with joy and a desire to worship You all their days.
Only You know what the future holds for them, Lord. I pray that it would be full of joy rather than sorrow, of laughter instead of tears, however steep or winding, may the path always lead to You. I thank You for all the doctors and nurses that care for them so dearly with all the wonders of today’s medicine, but only You Lord can heal them. Only You can restore them to health.
I have seen miracles already in my life and pray that you would bless Andrew and Adam with one in the coming days. I pray that it would be pleasing and glorifying to You to do this in their lives, that all may know the power of Your hands. Please Lord, repair the damage that has been done to their bodies, nourish them and help them to grow, mature their lungs so that they will soon be able to breathe without struggling, develop their muscles and bones so that someday they can run and play and soak up all the joys of childhood. May their youth be a time of carefree wonder and of growing faith in their heavenly father above.
I pray that You would use these boys to bring glory to Yourself. May all who meet them or hear of their lives be blessed by their story and moved by the works that You’ve done in their lives. I pray that many would come to know You and all would see Your mercy and love.
I thank you for all those who have brought our children before You, the ones we know and love so dearly and all those that have loved our children although we’ve never met. What a blessing! My heart overflows with joy and gratitude. May You bless their lives richly and that they may know the fullness of Your love.
Comfort my heart and fill me with Your peace, bring Kenny and I closer together each day and closer to You. Strengthen our love for one another. Forgive me for my moments of unbelief and strengthen my faith each day. You are my hope and my place of rest.
In the name of your son, Jesus Christ, Amen
