Below is a few transactions that have been going on with my 9 year old son. I take this deadly serious and need tremendous wisdom, timing and the power of God’s mighty hand. So if you would, please pray.
Yesterday from my wife:
“Pray with me please! I teach the God of the Bible to my children as my obedience to the Lord. I do not coerce or push my children in making a decision for or against but I do ask them to learn and be be respectful of what it means to be a Christian. Today my (very not ready) boy came to me and said with ‘tongue in cheek’ he wants to become a Christian and that he has prayed to the Lord and will wait on him. Today at lunch he actually wanted to say a prayer too. Then tonight when I got home from bible study group he asked me if I would pray with him before bed ( We don’t usually because he said before he didn’t care to, it was uncomfortable and he wasn’t a professing Christian.) When I went to his room he showed me in his bible the scriptures he had been reading and where it says God made everything and he was the only God. He said God answers everything in the bible and (he was excited) he had learned all this from reading his bible! (He acted like it was the first time he has read his bible )When we prayed HE got on his knees at his bedside! Please help me pray that the Holy Spirit will awaken or continue to awaken his spirit. What a blessing it would be to a mum to actually witness her son in the process of a saving relationship with the Living God. Would you help me petition the Lord for what could actually be happening now!?”
This afternoon from my son:
I received a text from my 9 yr old son (via my wife’s phone) this afternoon saying, “This is Isaac I want to be a Christian help please.” Not sure fully what the Lord is doing with him and its reality, but pray for him and for me to have full wisdom of God in this matter. Here is some of what we have been experiencing as of the last 24 hours.
Whether or not this is a true move of God’s hand we will see. I have prayed for many years that my children would be used of God (in the future), vessels of honor, to carry His name and walk in godliness. Oh that none of my children would walk down the sinful paths I have been; I would give both my arms and legs that they never, never, never go down the lust-filled, arrogant, prideful and anger paths that I have traveled.
For those of you in the northern Oklahoma and southeastern Kansas area, we are starting Saturday evening prayer meetings tomorrow (Jan 10th) at 7 pm. They will be held at the Grace Community Church in Bartlesville, OK.
