Don’t give up praying for your loved ones. I was at church a couple of months ago helping with the baptisms, and this young man got spontaneously baptized. Now, the week before–first of all, he was visiting from Germany with his sister– and he was telling her he was ready to give up on his life, he didn’t want to live anymore, he had no hope.
Well his family had always been praying for him, and he came to church spontaneously on a Sunday morning, and we opened up, you know, if anyone wants to get baptized, we have extra clothes and towels and stuff for you, so just come.
So this guy comes and he barely speaks any English. His sister is translating for him. He hears the Gospel and he decides that it’s time, I have to get baptized. So he’s streaming tears, he gets baptized, he didn’t have a Bible, so we were able to give him a Bible.
And I just want to say that God is meeting the prodigals in our lives. God is after people. He loves when people repent and when they turn to Him. So this man’s testimony was so beautiful because he was just so ready to throw everything down and say, the only way for me is Jesus.
So I bless you today. I bless the prayers that you are praying for your family members, and I declare that the prodigals are coming home in Jesus’ name.
