Faith-filled and grateful

As I spent time with Mustafa’s mum at the hospital today, I wanted to encourage her and continue in the spirit of declaring good things over them both.

I read to her this prayer that God would give her strength:


My [prayer] for you 

Is that you continue 



To be who and how you are 

To astonish a mean world 

With your acts of kindness



To allow humour to lighten the burden 

Of your tender heart 



In a society dark with cruelty 

To let the people hear the grandeur

Of God in the peals of your laughter 


11 verses of this poem follow, and we read each one together. My writing was difficult for someone reading in their third language. But I wanted to share with her how God has made both her and Mustafa with this beautiful list of kind and generous attributes; faith-filled and grateful before God.

Mustafa has been put onto hemodialysis, to help improve the function of his kidneys and also his liver, so please keep on interceding for him. We agreed that Mustafa’s spirit is so of life, that we know he will be fighting. Please intercede for him, and declare the good plans that our Father has for him, to give him a hope and a future.
