A few years ago I started the nightly routine of giving my children a blessing at bedtime. I use these cards from Desiring God as a tool to pray over my girls and plead with God to pour out his grace upon them. Sometimes I forget to do it, and my girls remind me saying, "Daddy, can you give me a blessing?" Needless to say, it melts my heart as I walk over to their bed and lay my hand on their head and pray for them. It reminds me that in the end, it's only God who can give grace to my children. And while they sleep, God is not sleeping ... he is always working to carry out his perfect plan for my kids.
