World Prayer Today

For every family who is praying for a prodigal . . .

April 16, 2018

For every family who is praying for a prodigal son or daughter, this beautiful testimony will renew your hope in God:

“I was born and brought up in a Christian family, where I was taught to read the Bible and pray on a regular basis. Initially I was doing all the spiritual activities, and my parents were very happy when they saw me growing spiritually. I was living a God-fearing life till late in high school. College introduced me to new friends and wrong habits. Satan is very clever, and unknowingly I fell into his trap. I would try to deceive my parents, but eventually they knew that I went away from the Lord. I eventually left the house and went to my uncle’s house in another village. By this time I had totally drifted away from God.

“My uncle and aunt are regular listeners of the Thru the Bible program. They loved me and tried to bring me back to the Lord Jesus without my notice. They invited me to listen to Thru the Bible with them. One evening as we listened, the Word of God touched my heart. The preacher shared from John 15. He spoke about a life without God and I realized I was living that life. I lost my relationship with God, with my parents. I lost my health; I lost everything. I was scared after listening to that heart-touching message. I repented of my sins and asked God to restore me. Today I am a regular listener of the Thru the Bible program and am growing in my life with God. I praise Him for the great joy He brought in my life. Please remember me in your prayers.”

Praise God for His redeeming love today, and for welcoming every prodigal back to Himself.

Tomorrow we travel on our knees to Japan. See you then.
