The prayer of a child- Part 4


If this post is the first you are reading in 'The prayer of a child' series, I would love for you to read the first 3 posts to lead you into this post
The prayer of a child- Part 1
The prayer of a child- Part 2
The prayer of a child- Part 3

After Bunny girl's bold announcement to her preschool teacher, I started to have this nagging feeling within...."What if Bunny girl could be right?"... "What if maybe she and Jesus had an agreement and He said He was going to give her a sibling?".... the 'What ifs' only grew on my list and a few days after my conversation with her I realized that I hadn't gone through my cranky phase in the month....... Gasp! WHAT IF??

The next morning after dropping Bunny girl to school I drove down to Walmart and picked up a recommended test by the pharmacist. I paid for the test and somehow it just seemed like I got all the traffic lights on that drive back home. Oh boy!

Once home, I literally tore open that test as if my life depended on it, speed read through the instructions and did what I had to and then waited.......

Those 2 minutes took forever to go by and before I took a look at the test, I sat down and prayed the first thing that came into my mind..."Lord, pleeeeease answer her prayer" and then I looked.....


Okay...so maybe that was a false alarm. A faded second line....I guess we'll just keep praying. I decided I wouldn't even say anything to Hubby lest he think I was disappointed. (Honestly in my heart I was...I guess without me actually realizing it, I had begun to really look forward to and hope for another baby.)

That evening that test kept coming to my mind and I just couldn't shake it off. Again that night Bunny girl prayed and this time I honestly prayed hard that God would answer really soon because I really wanted to see her....errrr....OUR prayer answered.

Late that night I know I tossed and turned in my bed as the second unopened test in the bathroom cabinet seemed to be calling out to me and I soooo wanted to just take that test one more time......just once! I just felt, maybe oh maybe, that faded line could be prominent...but I needed to wait till Hubby was at work and Bunny girl at school......just in case!

Morning took forever to come and once again the drive back home after dropping Bunny girl to school seemed liked miles away but finally I did get indoors and rushed to the bathroom. This time I didn't read any instructions. I knew what I had to do and I did it quick and waited.....and waited ...and waited....and again said a prayer before opening my eyes.

Know what I saw? ......

2 strong distinct prominently clear red lines.....Hallelujah......
WE'RE HAVING A BABY!!!!

Breaking the news to Hubby over the phone was exciting but the icing on the cake was my precious Bunny girl. I will never forget the moment we told her and showed her the test... she gave a shriek of delight and then after bouncing around in excitement, asked if we could thank Jesus and said she would start. Her prayer was the most beautiful and blessed prayer I've heard and I'm sure Jesus was smiling down as He heard the praise from that innocent then 3yr 6month old's mouth....her simple words expressing the joy she felt, complete with the giggles and smiles as she closed her eyes to thank her Heavenly Father.......who answered the prayer of a child.


* God is so good! Bunny girl's expected to hold her baby sibling in her arms around late May 2010.....do keep us in prayer during this time.*

My oldest son spent 3 years praying for God to send him a baby brother - never once did he ask for a sister - at every meal, every bedtime prayer, "Please Jesus send me a baby brother." In the 6th grade, he had to take a picture from every year of his life and tell a story. When he was 6, he had a pictre of him and his new baby brother. He told about praying. He also ended with, "Be careful what you pray for because God answers prayers abundantly - I now have 3 baby brothers" (And another one a few years later)

What a faith story she will be able to tell! Congratulations on your pregnancy! I remember my stick turning blue that day years ago - I was on the phone with my aunt. I just cried and cried because we'd been unable to have any more.

A very Merry Christmas to you and your little prayer warrior!

That's the coolest story I've heard all day! From the mouths of infants and nursing babes He has ordained praise!! Thank you Jesus! And congratulations to you!! My oldest daughter (0f 3 girls) used to pray that we'd get a brother for them...at EVERY meal. Actually, she'd just thank God for the brother that's coming, not really ask. Kids rock! Guess that's why Jesus said we need childlike faith! (ps, Hi from SITS)

Crazy how she knew!

And guess she was telling her preschool teacher the truth! So, no explanations necessary from you...me, I'm still trying to figure out how to get my boys' teacher to know that we don't force him to sleep on the floor! LOL

Congrats! I'm new to your blog,(visiting from SITS) but I must say, it is so wonderful to hear a child praying like that, and really, truly believing that God will answer it. If only we could all learn to have the faith of a child. I will keep you in my prayers as well.
