One Step at a Time
Of his own initiative today, Ebenezer gave me a prayer he wanted me to type for him so that could read it every morning. I almost cried as I read his words. I will share with you just one part of it:
God please help me to be respectful to my parents and the people around me. God bless me and guide me to forgive my brothers and sisters. God please help me to stop becoming angry easily. Thank you God for what you are doing for me and my family. Father bless my family and bless the Village of Hope. Thank you for the food that you have been giving me. Thank you for the water you have been giving me. I love you God and I know that you will help me to be a good boy. Thank you God for sending your only son to die for me. Thank you for listening to my prayer.
I praise God that it is in his heart to overcome his anger and disobedience. I love that his is thankful for having clean water to drink and food to eat each day, as so many here do not. God please answer his prayer. Today and everyday.
