When we pray for the salvation of our prodigals, we are praying for God’s perfect will to be done on earth.
If we establish this as fact, faith and expectation will intensify.
The Bible has some things to say regarding praying in God’s perfect will.
But first, we need to scripturally establish that the salvation of every prodigal is indeed God’s perfect will.
- “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9 NKJV).
So, never doubt that the salvation of your prodigal is God’s perfect will.
Now let’s look at a verse that speaks to praying for God’s perfect will.
- “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him” (1 John 5:14-15).
I wrote “God’s perfect will” six times! Now maybe we will always remember it, no matter what happens, and will never let our faith waver as we stand in the gap for those we love so much!
