Leaving an impression

My uncle Brian emailed W and I this very sweet and thoughtful letter while we were in the midst of some hard days.  We were trying to figure out what God wanted us to do...what was the "right" thing to do according to His word, what was best for our family and for my health.  This letter shocked both of us in a positive way.  It was amazing having a family member reach out and tell us "Don't give up."  God was wonderful to us because He worked through Brian at just the right time. 

A few weeks after Brian left us here on earth I re-found this message.  To this day, this message means more than I can explain to both W and I and it once again had amazing timing when I read it.  I will cherish this for the rest of my days.

We know you are in better hands Brian but you are and will be missed here.  We will remember you!  Thank you for touching our lives, being such a strong Christian and being my uncle.  Love, K

Here is a portion of the letter...

Subject: Our Request for New Life

Wade and Kristi,

Don’t Give Up!
Psalms 37: Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. …and what a priceless desire.

A Prayer for New Life

Heavenly Father, I come into Your presence to intercede on behalf of Kristin and Wade Adair in their efforts to conceive new life.  We pray these things in faith believing, You, Heavenly Father are the Creator of everything seen and unseen. Thank you, for the gift to W and K of little K. It is their earnest desire to give her a sibling, and in doing so, praising you and glorifying your Holy Name.

I pray that, “the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Glory, may move close to the Adairs and make your face to shine on us on them. Please intervene supernaturally and grant their request for new life, ensuring successful conception and full term delivery to birth and that all physical attributes are normal and healthy in every way for the baby. We speak a blessing unto Kristi that she be granted good health throughout the pregnancy in provision for the baby. Please protect Kristi and the new life she will carry. Surround Kristi with that protection and love. Let her know You are always there.

We understand the magnitude of this request and pledge undying commitment and praise to you.

We pray that this child live a long and healthy life in you. We pray that “the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto this child, “the eyes of your understanding and be enlightened, that this child may know what is the Hope of His calling, and the riches of the glory of His inheritance,…and what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us who believe.”

Thank you Jehovah Jireh, our Provider. Thank you, Jehovah Shalom, our Peace, Jehova - Nissi, Our Victory!   “For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you”,

W and K, “with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your heart through faith. I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge - that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever!”

Thank you, Father.

In Christ’s Holy Name, Amen"
