You have renewed my hope for my prodigal!Well my parents always were nice about telling me the importance of committing my life to Christ. I knew they loved me, I just didn’t feel ready at the time. I think what helped me the most was prayer. Once I got saved my mom told me she would go to my empty room at home (while I was in college) and get on her knees by my bed and pray for me. Explains how I suddenly came to faith in my room in college miles away from home. If we pray according to Gods will he really does answer prayers. My parents prayed for my salvation and Jesus answered.
