This came to mind. I pray your friend one day can understand this and rejoice. At this juncture it is a reminder for you so as to encourage you.

Psalms 40:1-3 (KJV)

I waited patiently for the Lord ; and he inclined unto me , and heard my cry.
He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay , and set my feet upon a rock , and established my goings.
And he hath put a new song in my mouth , even praise unto our God : many shall see it , and fear , and shall trust in the Lord.

Amen!
Praise Him.

Thank you, Brother. I really needed to read that. Thank you for writing and sharing, truly. Not gonna lie, made me cry. Hope your day is blessed.

under His wings - Psalm 91:4
Today, after work, I went to a little restaurant near my house to eat, and the waiter told me, "you have faith of a mustard seed" out of the blue, and I asked, "how did you know this about me?" and the person started quoting John 3:16 and I teared up. Then he gave me a hug and said, "see you in heaven!" I think that is the most wonderful thing you can say to another person. More than anything, I want to be able to say that to my friend, Jon. So, with the faith of a mustard seed, I will keep praying.

Thank you so, so much for your prayers. I truly believe these are the treasures in heaven...to meet the people we've prayed for. I am praying so hard. I am not sure why some people get so deep in our hearts to pray for them, to be their spiritual prayer warriors. I used to think that God didn't hear my prayers, because I wasn't "good" enough (typical perfectionistic legalism background), but now I come to the throne boldly with faith and pray in the name of Jesus. God bless you all, and so looking forward to meeting you in heaven someday!

I recently read some verses about persistent prayer:
Romans 12:12 "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer."
Ephesians 6:18 "pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests...."
1 Timothy 2:1 "I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people."

This is a beautiful forum, and I have been greatly blessed by those holding me up in prayer during a difficult season of my life. Prayer, especially for those who do not know it or do not understand the love behind it, is powerful because we pray in the name of Jesus; because of Jesus, we can boldly go before the throne of grace to make our requests know. Hebrews 4:16 "Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need." It is incredible when you think about the amount of love that God has for us that Jesus came and died, with love, and now we can pray, with love and with faith.

Dear Lord, I pray for Jon to know You. I pray that Jon will come to know and accept Your saving grace, that he will believe in Jesus, and accept Him as his Savior. I pray that You will reveal Yourself to Jon, surround him with Your love, and draw Jon in to the only love, peace, and redemption that matters. Lord, I feel You have placed this friend in my life so that I can pray for him. Please help me have faith, and to keep praying persistently for this request. I pray in the name of Jesus, AMEN!

I've been feeling lately even more so than normal that time is really short....and it makes me excited, but so full of sorrow at the same time. I pray that God puts people on our hearts for a reason, that we have a part to play in God's plan, even if only to teach us to wait on Him and to hope. I pray every day for my friend, Jon, to know the Lord as his Savior. I pray this every day, and pray for God to show me His plan in all of this. I believe to my soul that everyone we meet is for a reason. Nothing is by chance.
