I am praying, Clint. May the Lord enable you to cast your heavy burden upon Him and give you peace while you wait. The Lord knows where your son is, there is nothing hid from Him. May the Lord give you strength to trust him in the midst of this dark trial. I pray that your son will be returned to you soon. De 33:27 "The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms".Ps 56:3 "What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee".
Yes, sending prayers now. Please keep us updated.
How old is your son and are the authorities involved as far as an active search or have they just filed a report? This is one of those times when words for prayer fail, so we must listen. I ask God our Father to direct those in authority involved down the correct path to locating your son and if your son is able to contact you that he do so immediately. I ask for a hedge of protection around him no matter where he is or who he is with....Lord if there are people involved in this situation that have ill will in their hearts I ask that the Holy Spirit do a work in them and turn it around to good what Satan meant for evil. Through your son Jesus Christ all things are possible and you said that you give your angels charge over us even if we dash our toe against a stone. Please God dispatch those angels wherever they need be in this situation. In Your Son's Precious Name, Jesus...amen
Oh goodness. Praying!!!!!
I will pray for his safe return. I am so sorry to hear this news.
Clint,I'm praying for your son's safe return. My thoughts and heart goes out to you and your family, I can't even imagine how worried you must be.
We will be praying for him and for you and your wife!!
Praying you hear from him soon.
Holding your family in my thoughts and prayers -- that he is safe and well and contacts you soon.
I am praying Clint. Lisa
prayers your way...if you hear something post it so we now ok? God is in control..loves
Thank you all for all the prayer! Caleb, has been found, got beat up and his phone stolen! Face looks bad but he is alive, Praise Jesus! Now I just ask that you pray for his salvation in Christ Jesus! This is making us old fast! We will just have to take it one day at a time! Thank you again and may God bless you all, this has been a long 2 years that we have been through with him! Is 19!
Praise God, He is so faithful!! I burst into tears of joy when I heard that your son had been found. I went through a lot with one of my sons and it's not easy. But the Lord brought us through. We have seen 3 more of our children saved in the past few years. There is hope for your son!There are many Scripture verses that bring comfort, showing that it is the Lord's will to save our children and deliver them from the enemy who has them blinded. I'll be keeping you and your family in my prayers:Isaiah 49:25 "But thus says the Lord: “Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey ofthe terrible shall be delivered; for I will contend with him who contends with you, and I willsave your children.”Isaiah 65:23 "They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth children for trouble; for they are the seed of theblessed of the Lord, and their offspring with them."Proverbs 11:21 "Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished; but the seed of the righteousshall be delivered."
[hug]Praying for you all.[hug]
Just realized you posted he has been found. Still sending prayers that all goes well.
If it's any consolation to you, my step son was on a similar path and is now 31 and doing well. He was homeless when his dad and I brought him to our city from the midwest, about five years ago. We got him an apartment and an old car. We did this because I did not trust him enough to stay in our home. He immediately got a job in the food court in the mall and a night janitor position (this employer would hire anyone, believe me). He worked on getting his apprentice electrician hours transferred to this state. He had been on many good paying jobs before his homelessness. Now Ty is a journeyman electrician. He continues to struggle with his current addiction (alcohol), but I am hoping that he will be able to see the futile path that this sometimes leads him. He does continue to please and surprise us...I will be thinking of you and Caleb and sending some positive prayers and thoughts!
God bless and comfort you all. ♥
I understand about this generation, we have 5 children, the boy 25, he's like a ship without a sail most of the time...This is a praise report indeed!
Praise God, not that Caleb is beat up, but that he's found. Not knowing is the worst. I will be praying for his salvation. Being a parent is a lifelong job and doesn't end when they turn 18. God give you rest and peace.
I will be praying for your son and for you and your family. So glad he has been found!Hugs
Thank you Lord for bringing Caleb home! Now we pray that his heart will be open and receptive to the Holy Spirit. Clint just remember ..."Great is Thy Faithfulness O Lord"!Lisa
Oh thank God he is alive..I know how you must feel Clint I am so sorry that happened. Praying for your family.Dolly
I'll be praying for your son. I'm glad that he was found alive. 'll pray for healing physically...and that he would come to know Jesus Christ!!!Greetings from the ocean shores of California, Heather ;)
I'm glad he's "okay". It's ridiculously hard when you see your children deliberately stray from the path you have set them on. I'll pray that he will be defeated when trying to do wrong and return to the way.
Prayers with you and your family Clint......children for some reason can't learn from our mistakes and experience....but rather on their own...the hardest way sometimes.Prayers and good blessings that it will work out according to God's plan. Peace my friend.~~Rain
Clint, Praying for your son! Don't give up on him or grow weary!!! He is blessed to have parents like you!Psalms 126:5-6 "They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him."Speaking from experience,Farmlife Chick :)
Clint, I just stopped by your blog after getting home from being out of town and I'm definitely saying my prayers!!!!! Please keep us posted, we might not be direct neighbors but our blogging community is "tight."My husband and I are saying prayers for your son, for your family and for good news to find him soon!Lana
I'm glad your son is ok....I will pray for his salvation.....I too raised a rebelious one and know all to well the stress that comes with it and the choices they makeBlessings to you and your wife, rest in His comfort and peace. Our God sees!
