Prayer request for a child’s lost faith

05/21/19 – P.V.N.C asks for the following.  Prayer for her child who has strayed way from the teachings of Christ.  They has a wonderfuly child who they raised in the church.  This child was active in evrything from childrens ministry to teen youth groups, young adults and even did ministry.  Today, this child believes in God but no longer believes in Jesus as Jesus was just a “good person.”

Knowing that a person once had a relationship with Chirist and is now astray is painful.  Multiply that pain 100 percent and that is how this mother and father feel.  You have raised your child in the church and have devtored yourself to bringing them up in the faith.  Today, you see your child live a life contrarty to everytyhing they have lived and learned as a child.

There is no words of comfort that any person on this eartch can give them.  The comfort can only come from Christ.  Jesus knew that a struggle with finding peace on earth was tough.  So tough that he talked about it often.

What Jesus Said About Peace

When we study the Bible and the topic of Peace, a great place to start is with the words of Jesus Christ.  These passages are some of the favorites of mine and many other people as they speak comfort and courage into my life. When I struggle with anxiety, I look no further then Jesus saying in John 16:33 that He has overcome this world and gives us peace. We can rest safely in our salvation and cling to these words from our Savior.

Matthew 5:9  “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

Matthew 11:28-30  Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

John 14:27  Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.

John 16:33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

John 20:19  On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them,  “Peace be with you.”

Join my in praying for this family.  Lord, we pray for faith, peace, and a calmness in this storm for the mother and father.  We also pray for a Prodigal Son victory for the family. Finally, we pray for this Child lord.  We pray that you talk to their spirit.  The very spirit you entered when they accepted you as their Lord and Savior.  We know you will not forsaken this child.  In Jesus name, Amen.

A Fathers Prayer For His Children

As I sit here on the the edge of my daughters bed here on the beautiful island of Guam, I am aware of your love for me and my family. The quietness of the night with a hint of Jim Brickman playing in the background has set the mood of reflection. I see peace in the eyes of my children. When they talk, I hear happiness and hope. When I ask my kids “who is the one person you love more than mom and dad?” I am proud to hear them say JESUS! You have given them everything they need in life. At such a young age, I can already see you working in them. All the blessings I have coming to me…lord, redirect them to my kids. They are wiser than I ever was or will be. I have wasted many opportunities that you have given me. I promise I will see to it that the kids continue to know where all their blessings come from and teach them to be bold to use it. In Jesus name amen.

I was in the 6th grade and i gave my life over to Jesus.  It was a scary time because i was afraid to tell my parents that I am now a Christian.  Actually, it wasn’t until college when I was finally able to tell them about my faith in Christ.  I cannot tell you the exact time and day that i was saved.  I can tell you what was the first verse that i ever memorized.  Back then (and today) this was a verse that spoke to me.  It was everything that i was looking for all nicely wrapped up in just a few words.  It was a reminded that with Jesus ANYTHING is possible.  It spoke to the inner child in me.  A child seeking something from his father.  Recently, my daughter asked me what was my favorite bible verse.  With that question, Matthew 7:7 and how it held my faith together at such a young age was brought back into the family.

What’s your favorite bible verse?

Five year old dancing to SYTYCD

Melanie and Marko dancing to Leona Lewis “I got you” is the reason why nyah is now into dancing bigtime.

Click on the link below to watch my 5 year old dancing with them. You’ll notice her spinning on the couch the same time Melanie spins on top of Marko.

Congrats to fellow FDMS Marko as well for a great showing on SYTYCD.
