A Place for Hurting Families to Heal and Thrive
Waiting is a period of learning. The longer we wait, the more we hear about him for whom we are waiting.
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 families to gather, to pray for one another, and offer words of hope and encouragement from His Word. Here they learn to to rely on His strength for their journey.
Waiting Room Ministry hopes you don't wait alone. Join us.
I wait for the LORD,
my soul does wait,
And in His word do I hope.
Psalm 130:5, NASB
On Labor Day, we lifted lost loved ones to the LORD in prayer during our annual Labor of Love event. Let's keep knocking and storming the gates of Heaven, asking the LORD to save and restore!
"Prayer breaks all bars, dissolves all chains, opens all prisons, and widens all straits by which God's saints have been held."
