Dear Father God, I am deeply saddened that my child has chosen the foolish path of self and taken on board the mindset of the world rather than the things of God.
Look down in pity on my child I pray, and convict them of their need of Jesus as their Saviour. Turn their hearts from the way of destruction to the way of perfect peace in Christ.
Father, I ask in Your mercy that whatever it takes, You will draw them back into Your arms of love. Whatever it takes.
Father, I know that it is not Your will that anyone is lost but that all come to a saving faith in Christ Jesus. I place my child before You now and pray that Your will be done in my child’s life. May they come to faith in Jesus, in Whose name I pray,
