John Piper and praying for children

My wife, Jennifer, reads the Desiring God blog and forwards me the things she thinks I'll enjoy. She just sent me the most recent post about John Piper's commitment to pray for his children and grandchildren.

Each day, I pray for Charlotte, including personal prayers for her to grow up to love God and neighbor. I also pray the blessing of Numbers 6:24-26, which I added to the ceramic cross I made for her this Christmas.

The LORD bless you and protect you;
the LORD make His face shine on you and be gracious to you;
the LORD look with favor on you and give you peace.
