Urgent request

"For this people's heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them."

Matthew 13:15

Today I had a conversation with someone that left me filled with grief.

As I looked into their eyes I saw no evidence of joy, peace or light. Instead there was cold and darkness. So much pain. A heart that has become hardened to Truth.

My heart aches for this person. My heart is scared for this person. My heart fears where their eternity will be spent.

Scripture says,

"Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them."

Matthew 18:19-20

I'm am at a loss at what else to do and so this is my request...

For those concerned with Kingdom and eternal things, I am inviting you to my home this Monday night for a time of specific prayer. I am asking my readers and friends to join with me in lifting up those in our lives that have walked away from God or are lost. To meet with me to pray for protection and softened hearts for those we love that have lost their way.

Will you join me?Please?

Please forward to those you know. Let's fill my home with people and prayer for those we love in order to bring glory to God.

  1. When I read your blog the first thing that came to mind was to ask why does this person not have any joy. Has something happened in his/her life to cause them to lose their joy. I wonder if the reason they have become hardened to the truth is because someone they loved and trusted betrayed them. When someone who claims to be a believer does things that are against the Word of God it will cause a person to become that way. Praying for you all.

  2. You are exactly right. The person I loved and thought I could trust betrayed me in every way but we have a choice. I could have chosen bitterness and anger and have walked away from my faith, from God. Instead I chose to cling tight to Christ and Truth and my life has changed. I have found an unspeakable joy. As a new chapter in my life begins, I am excited to see where the Lord takes me.

    No one is promised the perfect life without hurt. We choose how we will respond to our situation and who and what Truth we will follow.

    I'm praying for you as well. God bless.
