Lord, Help Them Rest In You

This entry is part 25 of 30 in the series Praying For The Prodigal

Glorious Father, please bring the prodigal sons and daughters of my church family to the place of not fearing the wicked or wealthy living around them. Help them learn to rest in You and wait patiently for Your guidance in their lives (Psalm 37:7).

Fear can carry both the meaning of fright, or of respect.  This is a prayer that our prodigals will not give undue respect to the wicked – and in particular those whose wealth is the wealth of wickedness.

The challenge of Psalm 37 is to trust in the Lord, no matter what comes you way.  After all even the extravagant wealth of the wicked is short lived in the grand scheme of things.

Lord, help our prodigals not to look with awe, respect, or fear upon those who are currently experiencing the only heaven they will ever know.

Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who carries out wicked schemes.” (Psalm 37:7, NASB95)
