February marks a big month for our family because Matthew's new children's book When I Pray for You releases on February 19!
If it's possible to pick a favorite of Matthew's children's books (this is his third), When I Pray for You is my favorite. I have cried nearly every time he's read it.
When I Pray for You celebrates the dreams, hopes, and longings parents pray over their children, and shares with the little ones how much care and concern a loved one feels for them. It opens with a mom praying over her baby and as the book progresses, the child grows and the prayers change. It is a poignant, powerful read.
From the moment I saw you,
I started to pray.
Big prayers and small ones have sent God's way.
I prayed you felt safe,
full of joy and content.
When I whispered “I love you,”
you knew what I meant.
