A simple prayer for our boys – from the passage 1 Peter 4:10:
As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
as night and grace fall slow
on these little sons,
let their heart receive Your grace–
that perfect gift–
that they may give.
Your gifts are perfect
Your way is perfect
Let them walk in it perfectly
Let them love
Let them have a serving heart
towards each other:
when the toy they have is wanted
when the cookie half is unequal
when the parent’s lap is already full
when their brother says “I can’t”
let them give in, give up, and give all.
as You did:
grace upon Grace.
