God instructs us to pray for our children. It is crucial and every single day I am learning new ways to pray over their lives. That continues to be my plea to God. "Teach me Oh, Lord, how to pray for them because they are so important to me. They are merely my gift from you and I want to honor you as I raise them and teach them. Teach me Oh God."
Although Braden is healthy and growing, I am seeing God work in his life already as well. My prayers for Braden have changed recently and with that, he has FINALLY slept through the entire night...in his own room...2 nights in a row! God is faithful. He cares. About all things--even the small details of our lives. And because our children are no small detail, he cares even more when our prayers concern them and their lives! He is clear in His word when He tells us that children are a reward. It is our obligation to lift them up daily to Him and release them to Him because he so generously trusts us with them!
