In our church, inserted in the worship program is a time when Pastor Ding calls all the children to the front to be prayed for–every Sunday. This is one thing I would never take out of the worship program because I think it’s a powerful thing to pray for our children in our churches. Even if they’re usually looked over by adults, I know that God is working in them and speaking to them even at such a young age. I believe that wholeheartedly with Emma.
So ever since she was born, each Sunday, Perze or I would bring her to the front and carry her when she was a baby. Then when she learned how to walk, Perze or I would accompany her to the front and stay with her.
But after three years, last Sunday (see picture), Emma ran all the way to the front all by herself, with a big girl swagger. Without fear or intimidation. I was so proud of her. And not only that, but I noticed while she was up there, with her finger on her lips, she was motioning to the older kids to stop talking. hahahah.
