On this day in 1956 our son, David, was born. What a joyous day! He was followed by three girls, who added to our joy, and now we are blesssed with grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We hold precious memories and sometimes talk about the difficult,painful days of growing up. Many times I seek the Lord on behalf of my family, and pray that they will fulfill their destinies. Nothing brings me more joy than to know that they are walking in truth. God is faithful!

Father,in the name of Jesus, we pray that our families will not be terrified or afraid knowing that You go before them. You have not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. We pray that our families will not turn aside to the right hand or to the left. Father, give us a heart to walk in all Your ways as You have commanded us so that it may be well with us and You will prolong our days on earth. Amen.
