For A Daughter Who Has Become Rebellious

Heavenly Father I come to You with a heavy heart – You know only too well the direction that my lovely daughter has chosen to take, and how she has laid aside the things of God and all that she was taught as a child- and has started to become rude and rebellious… and Lord it breaks my heart.

Forgive me for not noticing earlier and perhaps for even helping to furl her rebellious attitude, by not recognising the warning signals – or perhaps by even ignoring them. Lord I believe You gave us our daughter, and I pray that the truths she was taught as a young girl will be brought to her remembrance, and that Your Holy Spirit would convict her of her sinful attitude and her need to turn back to the faith that she once embraced and to come to personal repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus as her Saviour.

Father I pray that whatever it takes, that You would bring this prodigal back to her senses and to You – Lord whatever it takes, I pray. Give me courage to face what You choose to do in her life, knowing that You take all things and work them together for good, to those that love You - and Lord I love and trust You to do what is best in my daughters life – bring her home to Yourself I pray, in Jesus name,

Amen.
