This is all new to me and without the help of Neil Tolbert, I would probably be still struggling to get up and going! Thanks Neil.
My desire is to be able to share with loved ones of prodigals/prisoners to bring them healing and hopefully restoration in their walk with their loved one who has wandered away from the plan and purpose of the Heavenly Father for their lives.
Some may not be familiar with the term prodigal. In Luke 15:11-32 is found the parable of the prodigal son. It is quite a demonstration of the unconditional love of the Father as He waits for the return of His son. I know the pain He experienced as I have waited 20 + years for the return of our prodigal son. It is a journey I would not like to repeat, but one for which I am most grateful. I have learned of my Lord's love for me as He walked with me, sometimes carrying me, along the way.
Have you ever been a prodigal. I have, and I dare say each of you has as you have disobeyed God's direction for your life. How miserable you are when you are walking away. At least that has been my experience. On the other hand, how wonderful to walking in His perfect will for my life. What peace it brings!
I pray you will feel free to share with me your grief for your child, or other loved one who is in rebellion. Lets be a support for each other as we stand in the gap for them together.
Pray Ezekiel 36:24-38 for your prodigal. It is a prayer of renewal. It is a promise that the desolate land will become a garden of Eden. God says, "I, the LORD, have spoken it, and I will do it."
