Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV

A PRAYER FOR PARENTS





March 24th will always be a reminder of God's grace and love. Twenty-one years ago, on March 24 our youngest daughter (then 18) was in a horrendous car accident and spent a month in intensive care, and almost 9 months in the hospital. There were days we didn't know if she would make it through the night, and months we didn't know if her right leg would be amputated at the hip. But God's grace and love was with us every moment, and he granted her life!


She will be 40 this year and is married and living a fulfilled life. Yes, she still had some difficulty with that leg, and some other health issued related to the injury, but she has a wonderful attitude and tells me often. "Mom, if I hadn't had the accident, I wouldn't be the woman I am today."

So today my prayer is for all parents who have lived through the pain of a child that is hurting either physically, mentally or emotionally and those who are living it right now.

Dear Lord, you are the giver of life. You sustain us when we see those we love in pain. You bring healing and comfort. Today Lord, for all parents who sit in hospital rooms, or by a sick beds, nursing a child back to health, will you wrap your loving arms around them and give them your peace and healing. We love You. Amen

Amen

  2. I had a prodigal and a car accident. I thank God for that "accident" every time I think of it.
