Yay for the abundance of “opportunities to pray” all day!
When our daughter Hannah was targeted for abortion – doc said I’d die otherwise – I said to my husband John, “You know what this is? This is an opportunity to pray.”
When she was in intensive care at birth (36 units of Pitocin) there it was again, an opportunity to pray. What else could we do? Praise God for things we can’t possibly fix!
I didn’t die, Hannah came home the next day with me, instead of staying in ICU the forecasted “minimum two weeks”, and she is an extremely lovely, fit and healthy 24-year-old today.
I taught her by example, even from the womb, that fear is not the way.
Psalm 139:13,14 – For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works and that my soul knows very well.
