A father's prayer

A Father's Prayer
July 23rd, 2003

Great God!
You are wonderful, awesome, majestic! Words fail me when I consider you. Father, you know the mysteries of the heart and plumb the depths of men's lives. Today , my life got deeper as you gifted me with Ethan! Lord, I pray your deepest blessings on my firstborn son. I pray that you will hold me near to you so that I can draw him near to us. Lord, I give you his heart, inasmuch as I can prepare it to receive you and your love. My heart bursts as I struggle to take it all in! What a surprise, what a gift, what a blessing, what a responsibility! Thank you for my son. Thank you for your Son.

in His name I offer this prayer - jeff
