“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
Billy and Ruth Graham once had a prodigal son named Franklin. He lived a rebellious life, but his parents never gave up on him. They just kept praying, and ultimately, Franklin came back to the Lord. Today, he’s someone whom God is using powerfully.
What an example for us to keep praying for our children and not give up on them. Of course, the Devil will whisper in your ear and tell you that it’s too late for your kids, and they’ll never change. But don’t listen to him. He’s a liar and the father of lies (see John 8:44).
