“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” Psalm 139:14
My brother Bryant and sister-in-law Kathryn are expecting a son on July 4th 2012, Lord willing! Children are a blessing from the Lord. Here is a prayer that comes to my mind when thinking of children…
A Christian Home
O give us homes built firm upon the Saviour,
Where Christ is Head, and Counsellor and Guide;
Where ev'ry child is taught His love and favor
And gives his heart to Christ, the crucified:
How sweet to know that tho' his footsteps waver
His faithful Lord is walking by his side!
O give us homes with godly fathers, mothers,
Who always place their hope and trust in Him;
Whose tender patience turmoil never bothers,
Whose calm and courage trouble cannot dim;
A home where each finds joy in serving others,
And love still shines, tho' days be dark and grim.
O Lord, our God, our homes are Thine forever!
We trust to Thee their problems, toil, and care;
Their bonds of love no enemy can sever
If Thou art always Lord and Master there:
Be Thou the center of our least endeavor:
Be Thou our Guest, our hearts and homes to share
I pray for you, dear little Robert, daily, and I pray for your parents. May the Lord give them great wisdom as they raise you in the nurture and admonition of the Lord! May you be a shining light in our family and church for the disappointment of God’s enemies and God’s glory! I did some research today on your names meanings, I will share my findings with you. I pray that you will live up to your name!
