"Not that we are competent in ourselves…our confidence comes from God. Therefore, since we have this hope, we are very bold." (2 Cor. 3:5)

40th birthday, 40th birthday gift, Irish holiday, St. Patrick, St. Patrick's Breastplate
I gave this to my husband Mike on his 40th birthday. It was hand scribed by my friend Pam Riddell. Soak in the beauty and meaning of St. Patrick’s prayer and legacy.
thank you…at 72 your article on E Elliot who i met in the 80’s when studying at Gordon Conwell ….is inspiring…
I am also the mother of an adopted child …from Romania…she is far away…and wont communicate…after choosing her father and his committment to exclude me…I trust God each day…and am daily living in hope because I pray for my grndchildren….and see that tho Anna had noone…her prayers ushered in the Lord Jesus…set on a course of intercession till 84…Anna …my new role model…thankyou ….I took a photo of your family and they are now on my war room wall too…love Lois
Thank you for your kind words. I too have experienced adult children who will not communicate. It is heartbreaking, but we recognize it as spiritual warfare and trust God’s plan. Thank you for praying for us and I will add you to my prayers!
Real things from a real person who lived for Christ ,,,,no leprechauns and pots of gold and hallmark-ey junk 🙂
That’s how we roll in this house, right Mikey?
We read this in church yesterday. Great prayer!
Katie: Good for your pastor for reading it in church yesterday!
We read this in church yesterday. A great prayer!
Thank-you for sharing this! I had never read this before and it is now my prayer as I navigate a very difficult time in my life! I pray for your beautiful family, Sharon! I really am enjoying the blog!
Elizabeth: Some of the old prayers and benedictions are so meaningful. I just love to discover them. I’m glad it will help to uphold you as you’re going through difficult times.
