My sweet and precious boy told me today that he wanted Jesus to live in his heart. I have prayed for this moment since he was just a butter bean in my belly.
We were sitting at the dinner table listening to a cd of Sunday School songs that he had selected for our listening pleasure while we ate. "Jesus Loves Me" came on and Luke was talking about how strong Jesus is. He asked me if Jesus was in his heart making him strong and I told him that Jesus so badly wanted to be in his heart if Luke was ready to invite Him. We finished off our piece of pizza and Luke says, "Mommy, I am ready to invite Jesus in my heart!" I asked him to come sit on the sofa with me so that we could talk and then pray. Luke looked up at me and said, "No, Mommy, I want to pray on the floor because that is what I saw Jesus do in the Bible." We knelt on the floor together, talked about what Jesus had done for him by dying on the cross and forgiving his sins, and then we prayed.
Praise the Lord!! Another heart for Him. Another life to shine for Him and tell of His grace, love, and mercy. What a gift to be able to sit and pray with our son, that was given to us by our Father in Heaven, and guide him back to the One who loves him more than any other.
