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, 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,
Heavenly Father, there are times when the difficulties and dangers in my life seem to be very similar to the things that David went through. In the same way that he called on You to judge his enemies and cover his accusers with dishonour and shame, I too have had times when I feel like praying for You to avenge me of all the horrid things my enemies have done against me. I also know You have promised that Your grace is sufficient for me in all the evils I may face. Lord, give me wisdom to know how to pray when I am beset by those that would do me harm. Help me, O Lord my God, to deal with my enemies in a Christlike way, and give me wisdom to recognise a time to pray for forgiveness, and a time to pray for justice. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for Psalm 109:26
