A friend recently sent this prayer to me for Stephen, Bill, and I and I'd like to share it with all of you. I think it encompasses all the things we have been wishing and praying for, but I just wasn't able to pull it all together in such an elegant and heartful way. Just a warning...have your tissues handy! Her prayer definitely tugs on the heart strings!!
Father God~~ Thank you so much for the wonderful Schwartz family! We will all continue to blessed by the new little life of Stephen! Thank you that he is fearfully & wonderfully made. I pray for the peace that surpasses all understanding to be upon Lindsey and Bill. I pray that they would remind themselves that little Stephen belongs first to You.....and that You love him more than they ever could! I pray that they would remember who You are and that You are a God of love, faithfulness & healing. I pray that You would touch Stephen with Your divine healing power. I pray for the health and development of his kidneys and lungs. I pray for good reports from Doctors. May Your Spirit go ahead of them paving the way. I thank You ahead of time for what You are going to do in all of these lives! I give you all the glory and praise! In Jesus' name I pray these things as I lay this family in Your lap of love and peace. Amen and Amen
Thank you Sarah for that amazing gift! I will forever cherish this prayer for my family!!
