Flowers Fade Friday: A Prayer for this Child

May you have the faith of Abraham
The meekness of Moses
The loyalty of Ruth
The worshipful heart of David
The wisdom of Solomon
The honesty of Jeremiah
The leadership of Daniel
The courage of Esther

May you have the conviction of John the Baptist
The obedience of Mary
The love of John the Apostle
The eagerness of Peter
The forgiveness of Stephen
The gospel words of Paul
The generosity of Lydia
And the servant's heart of Timothy

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, 
and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 
looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, 
despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. 
- Hebrews 12:2 -

I love this! I'm stealing it to pray for Jude (and all my little students) if that's ok :)
