THE BATTLEFIELD OF PRAYER
BETWEEN THE BATTLEFIELD OF PRAYER AND GOD’S PROMISE OF HOPE, I FOUND FAITH TO KNOW THAT GOD WAS WORKING IN MY CHILDREN’S LIVES IN WAYS I COULDN’T SEE JUST YET.
Don’t give up. God hears your cry!
These sessions were written in the mid 1990′s, between the battlefield of prayer and God’s promise of hope. My last child was a teenager then, and we were going through some rugged times. I went to God’s Word for help, and this Bible study is the result. From the beginning, I wrote it in a format to share, because the things God was showing me were too wonderful to keep to myself. As I’ve moved them to our new site in March of 2009, I’ve added sub-headings and made minor editorial changes for clarity.
Chapters 1-19 were written while my son was home. He moved out a few days before he turned 18, and chapters 20 and 21 were written about three years later as I continued to wait for God’s answers. It was not until my son was in his early-to-mid-twenties that I first saw God’s transformations in his life. But, all along, I knew he was working in a way that I couldn’t see just yet.
My son will be thirty this year. He is a committed Christian, a great father, and a productive citizen. He is married to a former missionary from Turkey, and they are serving the Lord together.
My oldest, a daughter, is also serving the Lord. Her work as a CNA gives her many opportunities to show God’s love to the patients she cares for. She is a mother, and we have done this “Called to Be a Mother” Bible study together with local friends several times.
Don’t give up. God hears your cry.
