Jordin Sparks shares the prayer she prays over her 4 month old son DJ, and how his birth has deepened her faith.

During an interview with the Christian Post, Sparks shared,”every time I rock him to sleep, I start drifting into prayer over the choices he makes, the people he meets, and everything that’s going to happen in his life. I pray, ‘Lord, let him be strong when he needs to be, let him be kind in certain moments, let him be soft in certain moments, let him be compassionate, let him be passionate about other things and other people.’”

“That prayer usually trails into a whole bunch of other prayers, depending on how long it takes him to get to sleep,” she added with a laugh.

The birth of her first child with husband Dana Isaiah has also strengthened her faith.

“My faith became so much deeper because I caught a glimpse of the love the Father has for us,” she said. “I wasn’t prepared for the level of love I felt and the feelings that I never could’ve imagined before. I just look at DJ and I smile and I just want to cry because he’s so incredible.”
