Prayer for Your Children: A Prayer for Prodigal Story

Prayer for Prodigal Daughter

Holy God,

Everlasting Lord,

My love for my child is like the water from a well that is continuously fed by a great underground river. Thank you for giving me my precious child.

The first time that bundle of love was placed in my arms, I felt a tidal wave of love enter my heart. My child has been my joy, my delight – the sunshine of my day.

Seasons have changed. As the leaves of the tree mature, so has my child. I look and no longer see a child, but an adult. The heart that was so open and eager to hear my thoughts now is cautious and closed. The gift of salvation is not a gift in my child’s eyes.

Of all the things I have desired for my child, salvation is the greatest, yet it feels the most elusive. Lord, my child’s rejection of you – the coldness – it creates such an ache in my heart.

Even so, I will not look at what my eyes see. I will look at what my faith sees. I will believe by faith that you are directing my child’s pathway back to you.

I will rejoice that the compassionate God of my salvation is not missing one opportunity to draw my daughter to his side.

Thank you that you are bringing into her remembrance your words, your mighty deeds, and especially your love. Thank you that you are bringing into her life, certainty to every area of uncertainty about you.

Thank you that she will feel your drawing today. Thank you that she is becoming tender toward you and tender toward your Word. Thank you that every good seed that she has heard about you and your Word is growing anew inside her. Thank you that the truths that she knows about you are becoming fresh and meaningful.

I declare by faith that my daughter will return from her prodigal journey. She will rejoice in being a mighty woman of God and a beloved daughter of the King.

I pray this prayer for my daughter in the mighty name of Jesus Christ,

Amen
