my heart's cry

... Our home is full of so much laughter because of these two little men. Oh, how I love them...


For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring:
One shall say, I am the LORD's; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the LORD, and surname himself by the name of Israel.
Isaiah 44: 3,5
***

Lord God, we draw near to You to claim the fulfillment of this promise on behalf of our beloved children. Lord, may they from their very youth have Your Spirit poured out upon them, that even in the simplicity of childhood they may say, I am the Lord's. Please fill us with Your Holy Spirit. May our home life and our parental influence be a channel through which the Spirit reaches each child. Help us to live in such a way that the life surrounding our children may be life in the Spirit. Gracious Lord, make it our one aim to train children for You alone.


Yes, it is our one aim to train our children for Him alone.

Lord, help us. We need You.
