Today our son Nathan (8) is having some oral surgery done in the hospital. He received e-mails from friends all over the world assuring him of their prayers. Here's a poem from a pastor/writer/friend from the Chicago area:
I'm your father's friend, young Nathan,
and I heard you need some prayer,
so I'm writing you a poem
as a way to say I care.
I am also asking Jesus
to make sure that all goes well.
He is called the Great Physician
and as best as I can tell
He's especially fond of children.
He makes sure He finds a way
to be near them when they need them.
So that's just how I will pray.
I will ask the Lord to help you
as the doctor works real fast
to fix what in you needs fixing
in a way that it will last.
I will pray you won't be worried
when the doctor says let's start.
Just relax and think of Jesus
who is living in your heart.
Though I haven't ever met you,
we're related, you and me.
You and I have the same Father.
Pretty neat. Don't you agree?
