Please pray for my friend

I have a friend who recently found out that their child is seriously on drugs. The parent is a believer and has been through many trials if their own and now the evil one is working hard on the children.

Pray that they would have strength, boldness, faith, endurance, love and peace in this time.

There are not words for us to say in a situation like this, except for scripture. God has a plan and will be glorified even in a situation like this, but that does not make this easy for the parent.

God is BIG and He can and does do miracles. He can and does change hearts. If He can raise Lazarus from the dead and if He can stop and start Grant's heart, He can change the life of this child.

This also should remind us of what it must be like for God to watch billions of His own creation shun His grace and spit in His face as so many walk, or run, away from His Gift of salvation. It must break His heart, even more than this parent.

It should also make us thankful for the children we have who are walking with Him and have responded to His calling on their lives.

We have much to be thankful for and much to be excited about when this short life is over.
