I remember praying Take My Life by Chris Tomlin as my husband and I traveled home with our firstborn seven years ago.

I wanted nothing more in my life than for her to live completely for Jesus. In fact, mine and my husband’s verse is 3 John 4: “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.”

You can imagine how we felt when she accepted Jesus as her personal Savior a couple of years ago.

We were overwhelmed. And very thankful to our Jesus. He gave us exactly what we had been asking Him to do for years.

We’re praying for our youngest children to accept Christ when He calls them.

But until then we will go on praising and thanking Jesus for the opportunity to come before Him on His throne.

And for answered prayers, no matter how long it takes.

Let your requests be made known to God. He’s wanting to bless you.
