• Our Father’s call is a picture of love seeking a response, reminding you who he is, and how much he loves you, trying in many different ways in hopes of awakening a response of love and gratitude, to call for you to return. He is like the father in the story of the prodigal son, continually watching the horizon for that son to return, longing for him to come back. This is the picture of our Father. He is continually looking after men and women, continually being faithful to them, longing to have them back, calling them again and again. This is a picture of the patience of God. Granted, it may go on for years for some to respond. And the whole time He is asking us to pray for those who are like this, to hold them up, to reach out to them with the power of prayer. ~N.H.
