Prayers for My Boys: Salvation

Welcome to the New Year!

2015 was my "year of prayer." While 2016 may have another main focus, I'm excited to see how God continues to grow me in the area of prayer!

So I will continue to share prayers the Lord has put on my heart for my kids.

Jack is 5, Kempton is 3, and Roger is 1. None of them have come to the saving knowledge of Jesus yet. In light of that, this prayer is the most important right now.

His Salvation
Lord, save Jack's soul. Please adopt him into Your family as Your son (Ephesians 1:5; Romans 8:15). Call him with Your Spirit and lead him to embrace Your truth. Direct his heart to Your love and steadfastness (2 Thessalonians 3:5). And may he fully grasp and tap into the incredible power You used to wash away his sins and raise Jesus from the dead (Ephesians 1:9). Thank You for what You will do in my boy's life!

There is nothing my heart desires more than to see all of my babes come to know their Savior. This is my daily prayer. I am being challenged in The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson to never give up.

Never stop praying.

In John 11, we read about how Lazarus died 4 days before Jesus showed up. We know the story. We know that Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead for the purpose of glorifying the Father. But imagine how everyone at the time was feeling. Imagine the frustration, the anger when Jesus didn't come right away. But as Mark Batterson pointed out in his book, Martha refused to give up...
"Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. But even now I know that whatever you ask from God, God will give you." 
Lazarus was 4 days dead and Martha still refused to give up.

Never stop praying.

What prayer have you given up on? Get back to it, my friend!
