Prayer for Your Children (by me)

We pray their cares would be few,
& your peace would console their heart,
We pray they would learn their true value
& they’d live as ones set apart.

We pray they would know Your amazing grace,
Though they may never learn the depth or length,
We pray they claim You as their hiding place,
& let the joy of the Lord be their strength.

We pray they would know You as their Friend,
& learn to trust You and be still,
We pray good would come to them,
All this according to Your perfect will.

Let them share the gospel without shame,
Let them lift up praise to Your Holy Name.

Extraordinary Love (poem by me)

Is sugar cane less sweet when it grows in a field?
Is a cloud more majestic on a cloudy day?
Is a daisy less dainty in a pasture?

Nor are you less valued when there is no…
…high five…
…significant other…

God thinks you are extraordinary.
Just as you are.

“Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered….” —Luke 12:7
