We’ve all heard the stories and personal testimonies of those who have wandered from faith in Christ.
The classic Prodigal Child testimony. Perhaps it is a child that had never come to faith at all. But there was just something that eventually brought this person to Christ. In testimonies like these, there is a common resource that you can use to help save your child.
Many will identify it as “the praying mother.”
While there are also plenty of praying fathers, the point is that persistent prayer is the greatest solution to prodigal child issues—regardless of age.
The Apostle Paul tells us in 1Thessalonians 5:17, that we should pray continually; while, in Luke 18, Jesus speaks of a widow who, because of her persistence, finally convinced an indifferent judge to grant her request.
So be encouraged! Our God is not indifferent toward our kids’ eternal destinies. Salvation is His will! It’s not His WILL that ANY should perish.
