Dear friends in Christ,
I had the joy of spending some time with my 27 year old son last night. He came for dinner and, after his dad went downstairs we just started chatting.
When my son was little and through his early teens he was on fire for the Lord. He loved the Lord with all his heart and lead several friends to Christ. Then he had a very bad experience with a youth pastor and it's been all downhill since. It's been ten years and he just told me last night that when this pastor kicked him out of youth group that he also closed the door behind him. My son actually had tears in his eyes last night. He has turned his back on God completely and now professes to be an atheist. He told me he felt sorry for me because I believed in such garbage. It's very difficult to talk with him as he talks over you. I refuse to argue with him and just try to tell him all the wonderful things God has done for me. I told him that God loves him no matter what. He just seems so unhappy and it breaks my heart.
I'm asking all of my Christian friends, who know the power of prayer, to please pray for my Patrick. I know God is just waiting for him with open arms.
Thank you for your love and your prayers.
You are all such a blessing to me.
