Prayer For A Child Caught Up In Addiction

Dear Lord Jesus, our heart is breaking with grief because our precious child has gone down the route of addiction. They have left home and are now living rough in the streets and seem to have become an entirely different personality. Lord we have not seen them now for many months and we are filled with great sadness –but we are trusting You Lord to work a miracle.

Look down Lord Jesus in pity on our dear child and convict them of their wrongdoing and restore a right mind within them. Protect them Lord from the dangers that surround them and bring them home Lord we pray.

Lord there is nothing that we can do, but to trust You - and we DO trust You Lord, to turn our child right round and return them home. Into Your hands we commit this great sadness and pray that the return of our precious prodigal will take place very soon – and we will give You all the praise and glory,
