Praying for Your Child

Never Give Up

Dad, have you been praying for one of your children? Maybe for quite awhile and you haven’t seen the answer yet?

Does this get you discouraged at times? Maybe a bit perplexed – and even angry – as to whether God is really listening?

I want to offer you encouragement. I prayed daily for over 10 years after my daughter graduated from college that she would stop feeling alienated and distant from God – that she would stop believing the lie that God had somehow rejected her.

She carried this right over into self-loathing for herself. She simply could not love herself. Both of these lack of loves – for God and for herself – made her quite depressed at times.

I was driven to near despair myself at times when my prayers did not get answered. Why would God let her suffer so?

BUT, God ABUNDANTLY answered my prayers – in the exact way I had been praying for – which in turn led to a total transformation in my daughter’s life. More of the details next post.

For now, my simple message is this: NEVER GIVE UP IN YOUR PRAYING! GOD WILL ANSWER IN HIS PERFECT TIME.
