The Prayers Of Saints

We have been in the upstate of South Carolina the past few days celebrating the home-going of my grandmother.  

She and her husband pastored a dozen churches over the years alongside conducting revival meetings and tent crusades across the area.  They both deeply loved the Lord.  I’m jealous that she has now seen the face of Jesus and heard Him say, “well done.”

As I was going through some of her things, I came across a devotional I gave her for Christmas in 2003.  She was diligent to not only finish it that following year, but every year thereafter.

She checked off each page, each day, each year.  Eighteen checks in all, until the day she passed.  

On many pages she made notes with prayer requests.  I found the names of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.  

I share this because I found one page where she wrote a specific request for a grandchild asking God for divine intervention.  The following year, when she came to that page the prayer was not yet answered, so she wrote the prayer again, retracing the same letters in a different color ink—red ink. Apparently red was her favorite color.

The following year she was able to write, “He did it!” And then each year after she wrote, “He did it!” Over and over again, “He did it! He did it! He did it!”

My friend, God hears and answers the prayers of His children.  He is faithful! For those praying for lost loved ones, wayward sons or daughters, or spouses, remember this, God is faithful!  You can fully trust His faithfulness.

Don’t stop praying. Don’t stop believing.  Keep those prayers covered in the blood of Jesus.  He will do it!  He has done it!  

We look forward to seeing you this weekend as we conclude our, “Tale Of Three Kings” series.
