Dear Readers, Look at the joyful face of my son Garrett. This smile and the joy within this child's heart is a direct answer to prayer. Years ago Garrett was joyless, moody, and sad quite often. I prayed daily for God to instill in him the joy of the Lord. Recently, I picked up my prayer journal and my book Power of a Praying Parent, by Stormie Omartian. Inside the book I found where I daily prayed for Garrett. It just dawned on me that the Lord in His faithfulness has answered that prayer. God is so good.
