Watching for a Prodigal's Return
Watching a loved one travel a destructive path is hard. In the story Jesus told about the son who set off for a distant land squandering his inheritance, we find a grieving father waiting for his return. We know he watches because Jesus paints the picture with these words (Luke 15:20, NIV), "But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him."
Like that father, families in the Waiting Room scan the horizon to catch a glimpse of their loved one's return. Asking God to help them find their way home. While they hold on, God has a place for these families to gather, to pray for one another, offer words of hope and encouragement from his word, as he teaches them to rely on his strength for their journey.
Waiting Room Ministry hopes you don't wait alone. Join us.
Quote on Waiting
“Some prayers have a longer voyage than others, but they return with the richer lading at last, so that the praying soul is a gainer by waiting for an answer.” ― William Gurnall
Labor of Love 2016
Waiting Room will hold its 7th Annual Labor of Love Event on September 5, 2016. The event is a special day to labor in prayer on behalf of lost loved ones and their families. Participants complete a Labor of Love Prayer Request Form, which is available on the website from August 1 - 22. Those who wish to be Intercessors complete an Intercessor Form and will receive a prayer assignment by August 29. On Labor Day, the intercessor prays for 30 minutes, completing a Prayer Summary Form on the website following their time of prayer. The Waiting Room forwards the summary to the person who sent in the request.
