Hi there my son! I have to say I love how you're memorizing scripture! Daddy has us on a Phillipians 4 challenge. The other day you went in to use the restroom, and I could hear you practicing your scripture. Yesterday morning in your Bible time in your room, you were memorizing the word then too. Guess what, God's Word is going to plant a big tree in you. You're a Psalm 1 boy to become a Psalm 1 man. I am praying that in. My heart and soul says, "YES, he is the Lord's ." Daniel, you belong to Jesus, you're His.
I write periodically in a private journal called, "My Son", and "Princess Papers", both are online blog journals for our son and daughter respectively. Here is my most recent post for my son which I feel I have permission from the Lord to share. When someone writes a post like this one, one of the responses is to rejoice with the Mother and Father who are believing for God's best for their children. The other response, or even additional response, is to add our prayers to the prayers and voice of that Mother and Father, in this case, Danny and I. Even now, I lift up a prayer for each reader with children - that those offspring would be a righteous generation, a light in a dark place, His very own prized posessions. Lord, help us to pray sincerely for one another as we raise our children in You, for Your purposes and Your glory alone. Amen
Whether I attend a wedding as a witness to their vow before the Lord, or a baby dedication, I have a sense that I am to continue to pray for what I have just seen. I believe we are to be mindful of our role in prayer in the lives of children and married couples around us.
