places to pray | five

On my knees at his bedside in rapt attention, marveling that he came from me, that he's managed to live this long (there was no question about it-- but that doesn't make it any less a miracle), and thinking that he's so beautiful I can't keep from hovering above him and breathing him in, or lightly touching his head with my fingertip.

When I pray here I am begging for the deepest desire of my heart: Oh Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on this one and save him, heal him, make him whole and draw him near all the days of his life.
