But, I love how Philip Yancey writes about a wonderful reason for us to pray - "When I pray for another person, I am praying for God to open my eyes, so I may see them as God does, and then enter into the stream of love God already directs toward them." Certainly this is a reason for us to pray for others - especially the children and grandchildren God has given to us. We want . . .
- God to open our eyes, so we are able to see them as God does - as His dearly, dearly loved children who He created with a plan and purpose - to bring them good and give them hope.
- Enter into the stream of love God already directs toward them - when we love them with the love God gives us for them, it is the best love we will ever give them. It is a love which wants their best. A love with no selfish motives. A faithful, never-ending-no-matter-what love.
