Prayer For A Troubled Child
I pray to you to help and protect my son who has drug and crime problem. Lord, he was in prison for three months but still has not learnt from his mistakes. I hear some people are after him as well. He is very abusive and is not willing to listen to me. Lord, I pray to you to guide me on how to handle this situation without getting angry. At times, when it got so tough, my faith got weaker my Lord. I pray to you to visit my home and put your loving arm around my son. My Lord, I also ask for your forgiveness for doubting you. In your holy name. Amen!
Lord, please show me that I have not made the biggest mistake regarding my son. Lord you know that I felt lost, unsure of what steps to follow, and how to react regarding my troubled teen. Lord, you know that I want the best for him but you also know that a mother should never be treated or talked to the way my son did. Now that I have left my son with his father I ask you to please protect him, guide him and please do not let allow him to continue in the negative path he was following. Please give his father the strength to show and guide his teenage son how to be a great man. Please forgive me Lord if I have made a mistake but I felt that it was getting worst. Thank you Lord for everything you have done and will continue to do. In your name I pray, Amen.
Dear Lord, I am asking you to help our son to have faith and beleive that he can recover from this illness. What ever path you put him on he will be sucessful. Lord I am asking for my family to have paients and understanding and work together, while we as a family go through this very difficult process . I believe only you can help us.
Please Lord, save my son. Send your Holy Spirit to guide and strengthen him. Send Your angels to surround and protect him from the evils of this world and within. Open his heart to Your merciful and wonderous love!
I humbly ask in Your holy name........Amen
