That Father May Understand the Love of God

by Victoria F ()

I ask prayer for my father, Baudelio. After having to take the pressure of being a pastor (even though that wasn’t his calling), he was left extremely stressed, bitter, and fatigued. That is not all however, my father fell into all of these things from numerous times of being cheated with finances and the people at his job that took advantage of him. For this precise reason he feels miserable, worn-out, and stressed of life. My father before being a preacher, before holding the job he holds now, and before being cheated with his money, was a happy man and strived to live a holy life. My father was the only one in the family that graduated from high school (with major obstacles that he managed to overcome), and the only one to apply to college. So, I pray that together we may pray for my dear father. The enemy saw how persuasively my dad strived for holiness, and the devil tried to make my dad fall into sin but couldn’t do it, that’s why he’s put all these stressful situation to my dad. One thing I know, however, is that the enemy lost when Jesus Christ rose on the third day, and I can now say, “Oh death where is your sting.” With this verse I close and believe God for the miracle, 1 Corinthians 15:57 – But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
