"Bold prayers could result in the death of a loved one", said our Bible study leader on Tuesday night.
We are studying the book of Luke and marveled at Zechariah's prayer/song over his son, John the Baptist. He prayed and prophesied boldly in faith over his son and his son did indeed go on to prepare the hearts of many for the coming of Christ. "When the angel told Elizabeth that she would have a child, he didn't tell her that her son would later be beheaded. When he told Mary that she would have a child, he didn't tell her that her child would be killed", continued our Bible study leader. "Think though, about how the bold prayers and obedience of these mothers and fathers blessed the nations". Praying today for obedience and faith for my children.
