Prayers for the Prodigals
90 Days of Prayer for Your Child
“Parents can bless their child in no greater way than to pray for his or her salvation. Yet sometimes knowing what to pray can be difficult.” As a parent with a prodigal child I find myself not knowing how or what to pray for my prodigal child because I sometimes find myself wondering what I could have done different in raising my child, or where did I go wrong that my child is a prodigal. Other times I look at my prodigal’s life’s decisions and rebellion that I become angry and critical towards my child.
The prayers contained in this book address these feelings and many more. An example of a prayer in the book reminds me that “the struggle is not my child, but with spiritual forces that influence him to turn away from you.” Other prayers include “when you’ve said something you regret,” “How long, O Lord,” and many more. This book provides comfort to parents whose children are prodigals and prayers to pray for them.
