Hope for Friends and Family Who Are Unbelievers

Just over two years ago now, I baptized my 79-year-old mother after we had prayed for her for 47 years. That event happened after my dad, at age 71, turned to Christ several years earlier after we had prayed for him for 36 years. I know that among my readers are many who are still waiting for God to answer similar prayers. So, here’s what I hope we can do for each other today:

  1. If God has answered a prayer like this for you after many years, briefly tell us the story in the comments section on my website. Let your story encourage and inspire those who are struggling trusting still today. 
  2. If you are still waiting for God to answer such a prayer, let us know how we might pray for you in the comments section as well. I’m praying your hope might be strengthened because you know many others are praying with you. 
  3. Invite others to add their stories and prayer requests. The more stories, the better; the more prayers prayed, the more rejoicing that will come!

God bless, readers!
