Prayer Warrior

It seems I have a little prayer warrior under my roof. Over the past year, Kendrick has really grown in his prayer life.

It began when we were praying for baby, Josiah Crum, his birth and his heart. He has had the opportunity to pray for so many others who needed healing and God's help over this year.

Never once did he quit or get tired of praying for the same people over and over again. It's a lesson my adult brain needs to learn.

Pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:17

He also has such a sweet way with words. His Kindergarten teacher lost her baby at the very end of her pregnancy this year and Kendrick prays for "her heart not to be sad."

This week his namesake, Charles Kendrick Watts, passed away on Wednesday. Charles was one of my Dad's dear college friends. (Charles is on the far left. Dad is second from the right)

His daughter, Marion was my good college friend. Today we are flying to go visit the family. I have talked to the kids about who Mr. Charles was and showed them a pic of Him and my Dad at my wedding. As we prayed last night, he prayed for Marion and asked God to tell her, "it's ok, he's with me now."

I pray that God continues to encourage my Kendrick as a prayer warrior and I appreciate the lesson God is teaching me through my little one.
