A PARENT'S PRAYER
"I am a parent who has a child in the gay life. I pray for him, but often
wonder if I am praying the right things. Just how do you pray for someone
caught up in homosexuality?"
-- Puzzled Parent
As you may know, my son is in the gay lifestyle. I have prayed many
different prayers for him through the years. Since I received your letter,
I have thought about my prayers and decided to write down this morning's
prayer for my son:
"Dear precious Lord, I thank You for my son, I also thank You that our
relationship has been so good lately. You know how much I love him. But
Lord, help me to stand firm in my convictions, and never compromise Your
Word in fear of losing him.
"Oh Lord, I pray that You will save him. Peel back the layers of deception
from his eyes, so he can see his life for what it is. Melt the bitterness
in his heart about things past, and his anger toward You.
"Lord, I pray for his lover. Father, save him also. Reveal Your great
love toward him. Use me as Your tool, Your hands, and mouth to bring the
good news of Your love.
"Father, I pray You will protect them from disease and death. Yet, Father,
I know that You deal with all of us individually, knowing just what we need
and when we need it. Keep me from standing in Your way. Help me to be
strong when I see difficulties arise. Let me allow YOU to save him and
know that I CANNOT. Help me to daily hand him over to You and trust You
with what is best.
"Thank you Father, for placing in my heart the deep hope and conviction
that my son will come to know You. Thank you that I am able to share daily
with the sons of other mothers. What a privilege to serve You, In Jesus'
