A Continual Prayer and A Faithful Answer


The girls took part in the See You At The Pole movement today.  It is where students gather at the flag pole outside of their schools to pray before school begins.  They have been doing this for the past few years and have been inviting friends to join them.  When I stop to think about that, I think about this prayer I wrote when the girls were still very small. . .

As I read it, I am amazed and humbled that God continues to answer this prayer, even when I forget to ask.  He is faithful and true, even when I am not paying attention.  How great is our God!

 Father, bless their sleep, my prayer
Guard their minds, their souls, their cares
Keep them still throughout this night
Wake them with the morning light

Bind their fears and grant Your peace
May Your mercy never cease
Stay with them all of their days
Bless them Lord, is all I pray

Lord of Hope, of Grace, of Love
Look on these girls from up above
Smile on them Lord, shine through them too
May they be bright lights, shining for You

May they know the love you gave
 By sending Your Son, our souls to save
Let them share Him faithfully
And allow others Your love to see

Father, bless their sleep this night
Keep their spirits shining bright
Thank You for this day we’ve spent
And for these girls who are heaven-sent.
