in an email dialogue with the parent of a teenager several weeks ago, we were talking about how amazing her kid is. and she wrote this:
My prayers for him before he was born were too small.
something really struck me about that. something about my own children, and all the kids i work with in youth ministry. something wonderful, and something challenging. i think i need to re-evaluate how i pray for liesl and max, in particular. as well as how i pray for lex, zach, matt, aaron, bryan, brandon and shane, the guys in my 7th grade guys small group.
