Try this at home. Here’s one feat I encourage every believer to attempt. Insert your name and the names of loved ones into Scripture.
Then pray the words back to God and see what happens.
Recently, I recognized the seventh anniversary of my father leaving this earth in a social media post. In the write-up, I mentioned the years my dad spent as an atheist.
When I met Christ at sixteen, I started praying for my dad. Prayers for him to believe in the heavenly Father.
And God answered my prayers sixteen years later when my dad gave his life to the Lord.
Inserting Names into Bible Verses
But in the middle of the long process, my faith often waned. I struggled to believe my dad would ever become a Christ-follower.
Needing help with my own unbelief, I began to insert my dad’s name into Scripture. Then I prayed it out loud and back to God. While I may not know for sure, I think it played a part in my dad’s salvation.
