The Ironman Prayer


A house of superheroes. Meet Batgirl, The Flash, and Robin. Superheroes fascinate our children, dominate their dress-up attire, and inspire them to be brave and heroic.

I am thankful for these three super kids and how God is using them to grow both my faith in Him and my dependence on Him.

Despite not being pictured, I am also thankful for Ironman. No, not the one created by Stan Lee for Marvel Comics, the iron girls (plural) who sharpen me. You ladies know who you, are and I am thankful for YOU.

Lord, thank you for Iron Friends. Friends who sharpen. Friends who stretch my boundaries and limits. Friends who refuse to tickle itching ears. Their stirred love creates action powered by your Holy Spirit. Heavy burdens are lifted together. Two are better than one.

Thank you for admonishment, encouragement, help, and patience. All gifts from you received through my Iron Friends. I want to be like them, because they want to be like you. And more than anything, I want to be like you, Lord.

Knit our hearts together in love, grant us the rich experience of knowing Christ with certainty and clear understanding. We have everything when we have Christ.

Thank you for Iron Friends. Now, help me be one.
