Most everyone I know carries a special burden for a child, whether their own, a grandchild, or someone else they love. Some of the children struggle with physical or developmental issues; some of them are in difficult living situations or have serious obstacles they have to overcome. Many are children who don't follow the Lord, even though their parents do. And the children aren't all kids -- many are grown and have kids of their own.
It is easy to wring our hands over the concerns we have for our loved ones. God invites us to lift them to Him. He knows their needs and He knows their hearts. He is the Healer and the Provider.
Tom and I have seen God work in the lives of our own boys through prayer. With that in mind, we have begun a special prayer meeting at our church to pray for children. We've met only once before, but will meet this Saturday morning to, once again, bring our children to the Lord in prayer. If you're interested in more details, let me know.
