The Arrow & The Bow

The Arrow and the Bow

 

Here is wisdom for the moms and dads

That time has proven true

The day your children learn to walk

They start to walk away from you

 

For at first you hold all of them

Cradled safely in your arms

Then one day their hand is all you’ll hold

Then soon it’s just their heart

 

And there’ll even come the time

If your love for them is true

You’ll have to let their hearts go free

To let them love

Someone else not only you

 

Can the sparrow ever learn to fly

If the nest is all it knows

Can the arrow ever reach its mark

By remaining in the bow

You have to let it go

 

Here is wisdom for the moms and dads

That time has proven true

The day your children learn to walk

They start to walk away from you

Wednesday’s Prayer Guide-Week #20

“…So Father God, to You I come, In the name of Your Son, I bring my children to Your throne, Father hear my cry…”

WP e cover copy      Thank You, Father, for hearing us all these Wednesdays as we’ve sacrificed and prayed for our children. What an incredible privilege and a comfort it has been to trust them into Your capable hands.

In those times when we’ve struggled to be consistent and forgotten to follow through, You have not forgotten our deep longing that our children know and follow You.

We pray that as we continue to cry out to You on their behalf that You will keep them in Your good care. In Jesus’ name, amen.

 

A note from us:

Thank you for joining in these weeks of concentrating your prayers on Wednesdays for your children. We sincerely pray that God will give you the strength to continue making a regular sacrifice for them.

We invite you to start over at week #1. And, whenever you need encouragement, please feel free to return to this post and listen again to the song posted below. Or, as some folks are doing, you could listen each Wednesday and use it as your prayer. We’d be honored if you will!

God bless you and your children!
