Every night before bed, Freddy picks Jack up, carries him to his room and sings a few praise choruses to him then prays for/with him. I go along too, but I'm turning off lights, getting the green blanket (aka blanks) and puppy, then joining them for prayer. Each night Freddy prays and then asks Jack if he wants to pray. Lately, he does and he'll repeat a prayer after Freddy. Tonight I was on my own putting Jack to bed. Freddy had a late meeting and since Jack decided to take a very short nap today, he went down a little earlier than usual. I sang a song, prayed for Jack and told him I loved him and good night. He then said "pray". I asked him if he wanted to pray and he did. This is what he said, "God, thanks Daddy, thanks park, thanks cake. Amen" It was funny, very sweet. The boy knows what he likes!
Another special thing. Even before Jack was born Freddy and I prayed a simple prayer for him. "Lord, save him, send him where ever you want him to go, and spend him out for your glory." We still pray that over him almost every night. The past few nights when we get through praying, he says "send him, go." I pray that never leaves his heart.
Now we have the privilege and responsibility to pray that over Lillie and Elliott as well.
