Prayer for My Distant Brother Way Maker, Miracle Worker, I seek You with a longing heart. I dearly miss my brother. Distance separates us physically and emotionally. I wish I could see his smile and hug him. I pray that You fill his mind and heart, Lord, with a longing to talk to me. Give him the desire to renew our connection and bring us together again. Remind him that family love is eternal and timeless. There should be no distance or hardship that can break our bond. May we rejoice in our love for each other. Amen.

By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth. By this we shall know that we are of the truth and reassure our heart before him; for whenever our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and he knows everything. ...
Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness. Whoever loves his brother abides in the light, and in him there is no cause for stumbling. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.
So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.
By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.

Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.
Having a younger brother to love and cherish is one of the most beautiful things you can experience in life. Now that your little guy is another year old, tell him how special he is with these carefully chosen birthday messages!
I love my brother. I will always love my brother. And he will always be my brother. Things are different, he is different, but my love for him will forever remain the same. Of course, it will take time for me to be completely comfortable with his decision, but I will never stop supporting him and I will never stop protecting him.

My hope and prayer are that I always make saying these words a priority. Perhaps this looks different as they become grown men with their own busy schedules but I will strive to let them know each day that their Dad loves them.
Hyrum is my big brother, and he is eight years old. He's my best friend. Hyrum is like other kids. He likes to run, he likes to play, and he loves movies. But he's also different. Sometimes he likes to have adventures in his mind. My brother has autism. Autism means you think things different. It doesn't make you bad. It just makes you different. Sometimes my brother has a hard time telling us how he feels. Mom has him draw things on paper to help us understand him and what he is thinking. Sometimes kids tease my brother because they don't understand him. I wish people knew my brother like I do. I know he cares about me, even when he acts funny. I love my brother, and he loves me. And we like to go on adventures like camping, building fires, and roasting marshmallows.
Dad says that one day, Hyrum will be able to talk just like me and tell me how he feels all the time. We don't know why Hyrum has autism; we just know that Heavenly Father made all of us special. Jesus said that we should be kind to all of our brothers and sisters. I want to be like Jesus. Don't you? True love can alter human lives and change human nature. I plead with you to have the courage to refrain from judging and criticizing those around you, as well as the courage to make certain everyone is included and feels loved and valued.
I grew up in a dining room filled with relatives, but always closest to me were Chuck and Jack, my two older brothers. The principal lesson Chuck and I were taught was: Take care of Jack. We always thought we were doing that, but in retrospect, I can see it was loving but misdirected advice. Jack needed no special care from us, only our love, which he always had.
Jack had one iron rule with his small staff: Whenever his favorite client, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, came in for a fitting, he was not to be disturbed. Mrs. Onassis trusted Jack's sense of style and taste, and Jack just loved her. So one day when the store operators were frantically paging him over the PA system because he didn't answer his telephone, an assistant ran to him. They thought he hadn't heard it. He had heard it. He seemed to always hear what he needed to hear. He just didn't want to be disturbed as he worked with his world-famous client. 041b061a72
