I get a lot of good info from Lighthouse Trails so I wanted to forward the following prayer request from them. Please pray.
April 7, 2010
We would like to ask our Lighthouse Trails readers to pray for two serious situations. First, please pray for a young missionary couple, Daniel and Janette, and their 16 month old son. They are serving in Guatemala at a mission school. Janette, an RN, and their little son have both contracted Scarlet Fever, and doctors fear that Janette may now have Rheumatic Fever as a result. Please remember this young family in your prayers. They are the son and daughter-in-law of Lighthouse Trails editors, David and Deborah Dombrowski.
Our second important request is for a young 20 year old man whom we will call “Michael.” Michael is in serious trouble, and he is a product of the emerging church. He was raised in a loving and strong Christian family in Southern California. For over six years, during his late teenage years, Michael and his parents were attending an evangelical church, which, unbeknownst to his parents, was becoming an emerging church. Frankly, his parents hadn’t even heard about the emerging church at that time. But the deceit of the enemy was working its way into Michael’s life. Shortly after Michael graduated from high school, he made the announcement to his parents that he was gay. There had been no indication of this throughout his youth, but the combination of venturing into the world of pornography on the computer and hearing the subtle lies of the emerging church week after week finally took its toll. Today, Michael has left his loving devoted parents and gone deep into the homosexual lifestyle.
Michael was raised a Christian. And sadly, there are countless “Michaels” in this same scenario all around the world. Please pray for this particular young man but also let us pray that the eyes of many young people will be opened to the hideous deception of the emerging church and its many far-reaching arms. Michael’s parents have now become fully aware of the dangers of the new spirituality and warn others about this false gospel. They are praying desperately for their son that he will return to the Savior of his childhood and realize that the homosexual lifestyle is part of what we now call the “death religion” (i.e., the New Age movement). Whether it be evolution, homosexuality, mysticism, abortion, or pedophilia, it all leads to darkness and death. In contrast, Jesus Christ offers light and life through His shed blood on Calvary.
As we are reminded in these two prayer requests, Satan is hard at work. But we know our Redeemer lives, and we know He is the way, the truth, and the life. (John 14:6) Thank you for your prayers.
