Praying for a fellow believer who is struggling in their faith journey.

Is there someone in your life who is struggling in their faith journey right now that you have felt led to pray for?

Here is a promise you can cling to. . .

"I will make an everlasting covenant with them that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; and I will put the fear of Me in their hearts so that they will not turn away from Me."
(Jeremiah 32:40)

You can take great comfort in knowing God never gives up on us. He always has our best interests in mind, and we can trust Him to be at work in our lives, even when we can't "see" with our eyes where He is at work. We can also trust that he never gives up on the ones we are praying for. The Holy Spirit will continue to woo them back to Him, with sanctification (and the freedom of the bondage of sin) being the goal in their life. Keep praying for the work of God to be revealed in the lives of those you love. It is God's great pleasure to reveal Himself to those He loves (all of us) that He would get the glory as we claim our victory in Him when we get to the other side of our struggle. You might just be one prayer away from the breakthrough you are praying for. Persevere in your faith believing that your breakthrough is coming as you cling to the promises of God.
"Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."
(James 1:4)
