A few days ago I joined The Acts 12 Movement here on WordPress. Here is the Link: The Acts 12 Movement. This is a prayer only site that prays bold prayers for God to move in seemingly impossible situations. This site excited me because I believe that bold specific prayer is much needed, and there isn’t much of it. I have taken part on a daily basis praying for whatever their topic is of the day.
Today, the subject was to pray for those with drug addicted family members and loved ones. I have shared before on this blog that we have a grown daughter that has had a drug problem for a few years now. We are raising her oldest son, and the father of the second son is raising him. She has lost her job, vehicle, and is about to lose her home. She hasn’t worked in 20 months. We completely supported her for 14 months and showed grace upon grace to her. Early this year we resorted to tough love. We could never get her to respond, or go in for any type of treatment. She had nothing but a heart of hate towards all of her loved ones.
We continued to pray for her and have always been here for her but nothing seemed to change. Last week my wife spoke to a lady at the Celebrate Recovery. My wife spoke to our daughter about this but she would never commit to go to the Tuesday night meeting. As of last night she was not going. Only about 30 minutes before the meeting was to start my wife received a phone call and the daughter said she wanted to go. This is the first time she has ever conceded to receive any assistance. Praise The Lord!!! He does answer the prayers of His people. And I believe this will be the start of her recovery and healing.
I already have an update. My wife just came in the house from the meeting and our daughter was all ears and wants to return next week. She liked the people at Celebrate Recovery and everything about it. This is very encouraging!
I just had to give the honor and Praise to God for moving in our daughters heart. There is NOTHING to big for our great and majestic God. Prayer does change things!!!
Shalom, until tomorrow, Lord willing,
