page and so many of my FB Friends liked it, I thought I’d share it with you too. This is a picture of my son and I having coffee at Starbucks last weekend, just before I took him to the airport to fly back to his home. (If you’re not one of my facebook family, please pop over and click “like.”)
It has been said that to have a child is to have your heart go walking around outside of your body for the rest of your life. And that is true no matter how old or how big they are!
Here is a poem for every mother who has ever prayed for a son. I bet you know someone who needs this encouragement today. Please pass it along.
I’ll stand in the gap for my son.
I’ll stand ‘till the victory’s won.
This one thing I know
That you love Him so,
And your work with my child is not done.
I’ll stand in the gap every day,
And there I will fervently pray;
And Lord just one favor
Don’t let me waver
If things get quite rough, which they may.
I’ll never give up on that boy.
Nor will You, for You promised him joy.
For I know it was true
When he said ”Yes” to You,
Though the enemy seeks to destroy.
I’ll not quit as I intercede,
For You are His Savior, indeed!
Though it may take years,
I give You my fears,
As I trust every moment I plead.
And so in the gap I will stand,
Heeding Your every command,
With help from above,
I’ll unconditionally love,
And soon He will reach for Your hand.
