summary/paraphrase of an message by Erwin McManus:

His young son who called him into his room at night because he was afraid. His son asked him to pray that God would keep him safe. Erwin said to his son, "No, I won't pray that. I'm going to pray that God would make you dangerous."

We are not to be afraid, but bold.

This from the book "The Parent You Want to Be"...I heard it in a message at Status and I love it.
