TUMMY TIME

He needs his tummy time, Father.

We place him on his tummy,

On a rug on the floor,

And he kicks

and wriggles,

and struggles,

and strains,

As he pushes with his hands

To arch his back,

And lift his head.


He doesn’t always like it,

But it is only for a few minutes,

And it matters.

It develops his muscles

So that he will be better able

to do the things he needs to do

As he grows.

It develops his resilience

So that he will be better able

to deal with challenges

As he grows.


Do I need to spend more time on the floor, Father—

Not on my tummy, but on my knees?

Prayer develops my faith muscles

So that I am better able

to do the things I need to do

As I grow—

in my life and my faith.

It develops my resilience

So that I will be better able

to deal with challenges

As I grow—

in my life and my faith.

The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with. (James 5: 17, MSG)
