Petition for prodigal son or daughter

This section has been included as it lies heavy on the hearts of many parents

Our Abba Father, we come to You in the name of Yeshua Hammasiach, acknowledging You as the Good Shepherd who seeks and saves the lost, brings back the scattered, binds up the broken and strengthens the sick. You know Your own, and Your own know You, just as there is perfect knowledge between You Father and Jesus Christ.

Abba I ask for your forgiveness and mercy despite their current rebelliousness. You laid Your life down for the sheep, and the sins of us all were laid on You Yeshua, and You have other sheep who are not in the fold. You are bringing them also, and they will listen to Your voice. So there shall be one flock, one Shepherd.

We acknowledge that You Yeshua are the way, the truth and the life, and that no one comes to You Father, except through Him. And we acknowledge that no one can come to You unless You draw them. Father please draw (insert the child’s name) to Yourself.

So we co-labour with You in making intercession on (insert the child’s name) behalf. We know that though they seem lost, blind and deaf in their trespasses right now, You know them. We bind up that blindness and deaf, dumb and blind spirit and mind-control, deceitful spirits and teachings of demons over them according to Matthew 18:18 and release Your Kingdom purposes over them. Prepare them to receive Your gospel and a new revelation of You.

Before they were formed in their mothers’ wombs, You knew them, and before they were born, You consecrated them and appointed them for specific divine assignments on the earth.

You have plans for them, for good and prosperity and not disaster, to give them a future and a hope. You do not want them to perish, but to come to the knowledge of the truth and repent in the name of Yeshua. Oh God, draw them and they will come to You.

Lord send out to them more labourers whom they can respect, or grant them a Damascus experience as with Paul if necessary. We pray for Acts 3:26 over them, that You bless them by turning them from their wicked ways Lord. This means we give the reigns over to You, to do as You please so that they could be saved, even when it is hard. We trust You Lord I ask that You put spiritual ‘bits’ in their mouths according to James 3:3 to lead and guide their steps back into Your Kingdom, in obedience to You. I thank You that You guide us with Your loving eye (Psalm 32:8) Jehovah El Roi (the God who sees).

Thank You Abba as You send angels out into all the earth to cause this to happen quickly and not delay. We thank You because as they come back home, no one can snatch them from Your Hand. Prepare our hearts for that day.

We trust and have faith in You for this, and we thank You in the name of Yeshua Hammasiach. I give (insert the child’s name) to YOU, and I step out of this battle. The battle belongs to You. I now step into Your rest! Amen
