Prayer needed

I hate that I'm just now updating, but we are in need of prayer. We've had a long string of wonderful days this summer! That's why I hate to just be posting now. I owe you a huge update about birthday parties, sibling visits, and all the wonderful fruit we've seen in the lives of these 2 boys! Unfortunately, this is not that post. K-man's behavior has tanked the past few days, and I mean big time. We are literally falling to our knees praying for wisdom, patience, and love. I am, yet again, confronted by my sinful nature that wants to give up on it all. Please pray that we would believe in the gospel and that the Holy Spirit would continue to empower us to lay down our lives for these kids for His glory. Pray that we would find our security and our peace in Christ. Pray that the Lord would grant us wisdom every moment. Pray that we would be encouraged along the way. Pray that my husband and I would remain a strong unit through this difficult period. Pray that we would display the fruit of the Spirit - love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control.
