I just had to share this word:

(Isaiah 49:24-25) “Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, Or the captives of the righteous be delivered?  But thus says the LORD:  ‘Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, And the prey of the terrible be delivered; For I will contend with him who contends with you, And I will save your children.’ ”

It does not matter the strength of the one who has taken our prodigals captive; God Himself has promised to save our children!

Believe it!

I have been searching the scriptures looking for prayers and promises for our prodigals, and I found one that I just had to pass along.

Promises from Isaiah 49 for our Children

Most of Isaiah 49 is a promise regarding our children, but a few verses stuck out.
8-9a:  "Thus says the LORD:  'In an acceptable time I have heard You, And in the day of salvation I have helped You; I will preserve You and give You As a covenant to the people, To restore the earth, To cause them to inherit the desolate heritages; That You may say to the prisoners, "Go forth," To those who are in darkness, "Show yourselves." ' "

10:  " 'They shall neither hunger nor thirst, Neither heat nor sun shall strike them; For He who has mercy on them will lead them, Even by spring of water He will guide them.' "

14-17:   "But Zion said, 'The LORD has forsaken me, And my Lord has forgotten me.'  'Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb?  Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you.  See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me.  Your sons shall make haste.' "

22:  "Thus says the Lord God:  'Behold, I will lift My hand in an oath to the nations, And set up My standard for the peoples; They shall bring your sons in their arms, And your daughters shall be carried on their shoulders.' "

25:  " 'For I will contend with him who contends with you, And I will save your children.' "

I believe Him!
