This is the most self-centered prayer I will ever submit for your consideration. I love my children. They make every day of my life worthwhile. Their smiles lighten my heart. Their cries pain my soul.
As of this afternoon, I will never be able to have another. I know my children are not replaceable. But, my situation has made me acutely aware of the gaping hole I would have in my heart should something happen to one of them.
You have done such an admirable job so far, dear Lord. Please, from here on out, put a couple extra angels on duty over my boys.
And how about throwing me some lottery numbers? College is going to bankrupt us.
