|Three years ago I was very sick and attended a wellness center in Hermosa, South Dakota. While I was there I was praying for my eldest son (he is 34 now). I was really pleading with the Lord to save him. When I had completed my prayer, there was a Bible in the drawer of the room I was staying in. When I opened the Bible a piece of paper fell from its pages with the following scripture reference written on it: Jeremiah 31:16, 17. So, I looked it up and here is what the Lord said to me. “Thus saith the Lord; Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears: for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the Lord: and they shall come again from the land of the enemy. And there is hope in thine end, saith the Lord, that thy children shall come again to their own border.” I began to claim that promise for my son in July of 2009. The following June (2010) my son gave his heart to the Lord and was baptized that August. He now works as a Bible Worker in Michigan. I praise God that He has answered the prayer for salvation not only for my eldest son but I have two other children that God has also reached for the Kingdom. To parents out there with a wayward child, do not cease to pray, for God hears you, and he is working to bring your child to a saving knowledge of Him. God bless all of you.
