A Prayer for Our Son

Prayers and Thoughts for Our Son Matthew

The parent cries out before the Lord on behalf of the child:

"For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
The Lord will give grace and glory;
No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.  O Lord of hosts, Blessed is the man who trusts in You!"
Psalm 84:11-12

"In the day of my trouble I will call upon You,
For You will answer me."
Psalm 86:7

"He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord,
'He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.'
Surely He shall deliver you
from the snare of the fowler
and from the perilous pestilence.
He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler."
Psalm 91:1-4

God says this regarding His child: (and we claim this on behalf of our son by faith)

"Because he has set his love upon Me,
therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because
he has known My name.
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life I will satisfy him,
and show him My salvation."
Psalm 91:14-16

The Child of God Gives Praise:

"Bless the Lord, O my soul;
and all that is within me,
bless His holy Name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all His benefits;
Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness
and tender mercies,
Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed
like the eagle's."
Psalm 103:1-5

"But the mercy of the Lord is
from everlasting to everlasting
on those who fear Him,
and His righteousness to
children's children,
To such as keep His covenant,
and to those who remember
His commandments to do them."
Psalm 103:17-18

"Praise the Lord!
Blessed is the man who fears the Lord,
Who delights greatly in His commandments."
Psalm 112:1

"He will not be afraid of evil tidings;
His heart is steadfast,
trusting in the Lord."
Psalm 112:7

"You are my God, and I will praise You;
You are my God, I will exalt You."

"Oh, give thanks to the Lord,
for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever."
Psalm 118: 28-29

The Parent of the Child Said:

"I will extol You, my God,
O King;
And I will bless Your name forever and ever.
Every day I will bless You,
and I will praise Your name forever and ever.
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;
and His greatness is unsearchable.
One generation shall praise
Your works to another,
and shall declare Your mighty acts.
I will meditate on the
glorious splendor of Your majesty,
and on Your wondrous works."
Psalm 145: 1-5

"The Lord is near to all who call upon Him,
to all who call upon Him in truth.
He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him;
He also will hear their cry and save them.
The Lord preserves all who love Him."
Psalm 145:18-20a.

We pray this and claim this by faith, Dear Lord, on behalf
of our precious son. He is Your child; You only lent him to us for a season. We will trust in You to do what is right in Your sight on his behalf...and on behalf of his dear wife and son.  Bring healing to him, Lord, if it please You.  Have mercy upon him, and give him strength and power from on High.
We commit him to You, in Jesus' Name.

Nicole, Noah, and Matthew

A recent post that will give some background to this prayer :  Home Again-Home Again-Jiggety-Jig

Although the news was not real encouraging from the Dr. today,
we are trusting in God to
continue the work that He has begun in Matthew's life. We will continue to praise our Lord and Saviour, even in the face of discouragement.  God is in control. 

"My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord,
and all flesh shall bless His Holy Name
Forever and ever." Psalm 145:21
