Prayer for Stephen

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!!
