Heavenly Father, I just long that my daughter would recognize her need of Jesus and trust Him as her personal Saviour. I know that it is not Your will that anyone should perish but that all should come to repentance and saving knowledge of the truth.. but she has resisted Your call, which grieves me so deeply.
But I know that Your Holy Spirit convicts sinners of their need of Jesus, and I pray that He would show my daughter that her life is going in the wrong direction and that she has become a slave to sin, the world, the devil.. and all that it offers her – but that in the long run it will only lead to problems and difficulties.
Look down on her I pray with pity and mercy. I know that it is Your will that she comes to faith in Jesus and I ask that no matter what it takes, You would draw her into Your arms of love, and open her eyes to the truth of the glorious gospel of grace.
Give me the wisdom and patience to deal with her in a way that does not push her away from the gospel but draws her to You.. and I trust her future into Your hands for I know that You love for her is even greater than my own. Thank You, Father, in Jesus name,
