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,
“Remember me, O LORD, with the favour that thou bearest unto
thy people: O visit me with thy salvation;”

Dear Lord, what great hope and mystery surrounds this lovely time of the year when the body of Christ specially remember the first advent of our Lord Jesus with such anticipation – that wonderful time when You came into the world, so many years ago, as the King of Israel and Saviour of the world.
Lord we know that it is not Your will that anyone should perish but that all should come to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Who alone can save a dying world, that is lost in trespasses and sins.
Open the eyes and the hearts of those that are lost in their sins and blinded to the truth of the glorious gospel of Christ. Visit those we pray who have not yet accepted the Lord Jesus as their Saviour. Convict those who have their attention fixed on the temporal things that are passing away….. Lord at this time of Advent when the people of the world are so busy in making preparation for a secular Christmas, we ask You to convict many hearts of their real need of Jesus Christ as their Saviour.
Bring many we pray to a deeper understanding of the real meaning of Advent and Christmas, Help them to come to and realise that this is a time of hope, as we remember when the eternal God became the prefect Man – and was born as a baby to die on a cross for the sin of the world. Help them to understand that He lived His life in the shadow of the cross, so that sinful man could be forgiven - by simply believing on His name. Look down in pity on all who do not know the Lord Jesus as Saviour, in Whose name we pray,
“Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the heathen, to give thanks unto thy holy name, and
to triumph in thy praise.”

Heavenly Father, thank You for the book of Psalms, which has become a source of comfort and hope as well as a reminder of Your never-failing mercy and grace. Thank You that although You scattered Your rebellious people, the day is coming when they will repent of their sin; call on the name of the Lord and be saved as a nation. May I never forget what a faithful God You are to Israel and all Your people, and may I develop a heart of humility and gratefulness for all the goodness and grace that has been extended to me. I pray that my heart would remain tender towards You and be filled with prayers of thanksgiving and praise for Your holy name's sake - Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, Who is from everlasting even to everlasting - "AMEN." Praise the LORD!"
the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the LORD.”
