Moms Praying for Prodigals

“Dear faithful mamas who are praying for beloved wayward children, don’t give up! Even if you don’t see any progress. Even if you feel like a broken record. God never tires of your prayers. And when the time is right, He will act. The breakthrough will come.”  – Shelley Lloyd Smith, praying mom of former prodigal.

I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the LORD. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart.  Jeremiah 24:7 (NIV)
