This post is another in the series of gospel centered parenting prayers I am doing in partnership with my friends at When You Rise.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4:6
Oh Father, I come before you with a heart full of concern for my son. His little heart is so very heavy. Yet even as I pray this, I have to admit that I never cease to be amazed at the ways in which You reveal the sin in my heart through the behavior of my own children.
In recent weeks, my littlest has been so worried. Who knew a four-year-old could carry the weight of an adult on his shoulders? As I overheard him praying to You the other night, asking You to protect us from bad things happening, particularly bad storms, my own heart was pierced with conviction.
