Eisley's precious little parts prayer

As I held my little girl in my arms trying to get her to go back to sleep (which was eventually successful), I studied her every little detail. I realized that I have SO much to be grateful for!

I remembered back to her first days in the hospital when she failed her hearing test in one ear. We chose not to worry at that moment, but I have to admit the worry did linger a bit until her next doctor's appointment. At the next appointment, our hunches were confirmed, it was just amniotic fluid in her ear that caused her to fail the initial test. She passed the hearing test in both ears. Praise the Lord!

Her ears work, her eyes work, her nose works, her heart works, her feet work... So today, I took a moment to thank God for every little detail of her body and prayed for protection and guidance for all the sweet little parts of Eisley. In a condensed version, here is Eisley's precious little parts prayer.

Dear Lord, thank you for Eisley's beautiful blue eyes. Please let her eyes see only the good in people. Let her eyes see only things that will be uplifting to her. I pray that she never sees herself in a negative light, that she only sees herself the way you see her.

Thank you for Eisley's working ears. I pray that you will protect her ears from words that are unkind and demeaning. I pray that her ears will hear what You want them to hear.

Thank you for her beating heart. I pray that she devotes her heart to you at an early age. I pray that you will protect her heart from pain. I pray that she will not give her heart away easily.

Thank you for her feet and toes. May they go where you want her to go. I pray that they will be used to spread the Truth of your Word.

Thank you for Eisley's perfect little lips. I pray that they will only speak kind word to others. I pray that you will guard who she kisses.

Thank you for her arms and fingers. I pray that they will only touch others with love. I pray that they will be used to do Your work.

Thank you for her precious little nose.

Thank you for her beautiful skin.

Dear Heavenly Father, keep Eisley safe from danger seen and unseen. Thank you for the privilege of being her mother.

LOL, thanks Friend! Emmett is the eye trouble, Eisley is the ear trouble - and I think we may all be concerned if Eisley's eyes WERE hearing!
