The Prayers Of Children
Andy is out of town, so it's just me and the kids. I got to tuck them in tonight and it was so precious to hear all three of my kids (unprompted) ask God to bring "Leo" home before Christmas. The cynical party of me cringed because I don't want them to be disappointed if he doesn't come before Christmas or if it doesn't happen at all, but then (by their sweet voices) I was reminded of childlike faith. I need to have their faith. I need to pray and God will give me the desires of my heart. I need to pray with faith and believe. God can bring Lionel home before Christmas if that is His plan. So, with all my heart: God, please bring Lionel home to us before Christmas!
