Before naptime, I ask John Chase what he would like to pray. His answer is always the same: "For a girl who has clean hands and a pure heart to marry." !!! :-) So we pray that for John Chase & Noah. And we pray that Jilly Bean will marry a man with clean hands and a pure heart also, who will love God and her.
We pray that John Chase & Noah will be best friends ("like Lightning McQueen and Mater the Tow Truck")
We pray for God's will concerning our family size. Although, today John Chase told me that he doesn't think we need any more babies. He likes the babies that we have (Noah & Jillian). In the past, John Chase's opinion on things has proven to be prophetic, so I do not take this statement lightly.
Finally, we pray that the Offields (Krista, Phil & Ezra) will move closer to us.
"Who may ascend the hill of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear by what is false. He will receive blessing from the Lord and vindication from God his Savior. Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, O God of Jacob." Psalm 24:4-6
