P4S~ DAY 20 Salvation

Oh, Mamas…
Today, Day 20, we pray for our sons’ Salvation. Nothing matters more than this! No matter the age of your sons, they are in need of a saving relationship with Jesus. I join you in prayer today, praying for your sons and mine, and I am lifting you up as well.
Our church will be baptizing folks soon and, I don’t know about you, but I cry tears of joy…every time! If your son has yet to make this choice for Christ, I pray that the Lord speaks his heart today and that he receives the gift offered. Blessed be the name of the Lord!

  • READ | If you haven’t already, read through “When Hearts Soften” (pg. 38-39) and work through any (or all) of the Study Questions that enhance your time in this challenge!
  • PRAY | Work through the 10 prayers on Salvation (pg. 41) using whatever method works best for you!
  • COMMENT | We have many mamas in our prayer challenge community who are praying for the salvation of their sons – young and grown. If you have a son in need of a saving relationship with Jesus, leave a comment with your prayer, we’ll join you today! If your sons are followers of Christ, take a moment and leave a comment to pray for someone else who is asking God to capture the heart of their son!

Day Twenty – Salvation
Encouragement from Brooke
There is NOTHING my heart yearns for more than my sons' salvations. To quote from the eBook:
"Day after day you will parent, intentionally seeking the heart of your son. But until the King of kings and Lord of lords turns his heart of stone to a heart of flesh, your son's actions will be motivated by what is pleasing to him, rather than what is pleasing to the Lord." p. 15
Everything hinges on this. Oh, we can pray for protection, good friends and influences and positive, fruit-bearing experiences for our sons along the way. But until their hearts submit to Jesus they will continue to choose themselves and their own way.
Elyse Fitzpatrick, in her book entitled, Give Them Grace: Dazzling Your Kids with the Love of Jesus, says “There is no easy way to say it, but it must be said: parents and churches are not passing on a robust Christian faith and an accompanying commitment to the church.”
Take a moment today to look long and hard at your parenting. Is it Gospel-centered, or have you allowed the world's “stinking thinking” to creep into your home?
"Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord
and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
you will be saved."
~Romans 10:9

May the LORD be__________'s light and his salvation; whom shall he fear? May the LORD be the stronghold of his life; of whom shall he be afraid? (Psalm 27:1).
May__________take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God (Ephesians 6:17).
