Your sincere love and concern for the eternal welfare of your
wife has been heard.
Dear heavenly Father You hear the sincere prayers of all of Your
children. Please do what can be done to open the eyes and ears
of Tony's dear wife to the urgency of these days. Actually, all
days are urgen,t given the unpredictability of life on this
planet in these dangerous times. Give he the pervading and
unwavering idea that Jesus loves her and died for her on that
painful cross, without uttering a single word of revenge or of
hatred, but rather calling for His Father to forgive His
murderers since they knew not what they were doing. FOrgive,
Tony's wife and others like her dear Father, for they too do not
know what they are doing.
What they are really doing when they reject the offer of
salvation and eternal joy from the One who paid the price with
His life on that cruel cross, is rejecting the only true
salvation available to us on earth. Our works cannot save us. No
one else can intercede for us except He who earned that right at
the cross. He willingly gave His life that she and those who
reject Him could escape the punishment that their sinful nature
deserves as descendants of Adam and Eve. But, the price is
making the choice to believe in Him.
But words like these are weak and will not do. The Holy Spirit
Himself must descend into the mind and be the agent of
transforming change. Unrepentant men and women cannot choose to
be saved for their sinful nature makes such a choice impossible
for them, The choice must be motivated by You dear Holy Spirit
who can find Your lost sheep and woo them homeward, as the last
rays of daylight fade quickly in the western sky. The cry of the
wolves across the distant hills can be heard and the cold wind
of evening is beginning to blow across the land. The time
remaining is truly limited and the lost sheep must be found and
told the good news so that they can truly understand what it
means to be saved.
Motivated by the Holy Spirit, on April 15, 1912, as the great
doomed ship RMW Titanic gave up the ghost and sank beneath the
ocean waves for the last time, the Reverend John Harper
willingly jumped in the sea and swam from one to another asking
if they were saved, before they perished. He quoted Acts 16:31
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved. Send
another Rev. Harper to Tony's wife and the others like her to
tell them in their final minutes that all they need to do is
believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.
Please, dear Father, honor Tony's request and send Your Holy
Spirit in some way that only You can know to find her -- one
more of Your lost sheep. I pray she will understand at last and
in the presence of holy tears of joy, finally accept the
greatest gift that she could ever hope to receive, from Someone
who has been waiting a long time to welcome her home.
Thank You so very much for hearing my simple but sincere words
and let Tony's wife receive this gift before the Lord returns.
