An answer to a father's prayer.

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

I have been praying for my children for the past year and a half to return to the Church. I love them all, but they haven't been faithful in their practice of the faith as they should be. My wife told me today that our eldest daughter, who is getting married in October, is returning to the Church and also getting married in the Church! I intend to say a novena in thanks for this!

Thanks be to God!

    Praise the Lord! He does answer prayers - in His time. A thank you novena would be a wonderful way to say thanks.

    How thrilled you must be!! If only our kids understood that our HIGHEST and BEST hope for them is to follow Jesus and for HIM to be first in their lives. So many other aspects of an abundant life here would follow if they did that. But looking back, it has taken ME way too long to have fully understood that, so I try to not be too impatient with my "kids", and to keep praying for them, as I'm certain my parents kept praying for me.

    Keep praying for this daughter, though, as well as your other children. Satan never likes to lose his grip. He won't give us so we can't either!

    How happy you must be!

    I help with admin on the weddings for our church, and it's lovely when couples actually start attending church prior to the date - and even better if they continue afterwards when they don't have to "jump through hoops"!

    Praise God! It's so hard when they leave. But then, I left for 10 years and my husband for 25. Her faith will mean more to her now that she's chosen it consciously for herself. :)
