“Baby Bird. We’ve all got one,” writes Tripoli. “It’s that most precious prayer in your heart. The one that means the world to you. The one that keeps you up at night. You know its worth—its value. It’s everything to you. Your baby bird.
“When God told me, ‘And I have in My hand, your baby bird,’ I knew what He meant. He was talking about that prayer. The prayer of my heart. The longing of my soul. It’s what matters most to me; it’s that for which I’d give all that I have and never stop giving. Yeah, I’d live and die for my baby bird… Indeed I do, every day.
“But my baby bird is different from yours. What is the prayer of your heart? Who is that person, situation, or ‘thing’ you so desperately need to know is in God’s hands? What do you need to trust Him for today just to make it to tomorrow? What drops you to your knees? What fills and breaks your heart at the same time? What do you ‘live and die for’ every day?
“I know there’s something—we’ve all got something. And I know this poem, although given to me, isn’t mine alone. It’s yours too. It’s all of ours. Because we’ve all got our own ‘baby bird,’ which we must place in God’s hands and then wait… Over which we must speak God’s Word and then stand… That little bird we must look at—through eyes of faith—and see taking flight. Because it’s your faith that’s gonna make it happen. Your faith is what gives that precious prayer its wings.”
