“A prayer for Becket,” a mother’s prayer for her gay son
Becket Cook lived an amazing Hollywood life. He knew many people in the industry and had many friends. He went to glamourous parties and rubbed elbows with who’s who in Hollywood.
He was in love and lived with a partner: what else could he be missing?
The kind of life he lived was pretty much ideal by the world’s standards. But then he met Christ and left everything behind. That was in 2006.
In 2023, Becket discovered a letter from her beloved mother, Monica—a mother’s prayer for her gay son. He was so inspired and kept reading the letter each night.
He urges all parents struggling with a gay son or lesbian daughter to pray and write a letter of love, committing their child to God.
It could be the greatest treasure of your child, he said.
What did Becket Cook’s mom pray for?
In a nutshell, Monica asked God to protect his son, Becket, especially when the enemy comes against him in the all-powerful name of the Lord Jesus Christ and with the sword of the spirit, the word of God. She quotes the following verse:
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
