Prayer For My Depressed Son

How I thank You for my son and the joy that he has brought into my life, but Lord know that this precious child of mine has been entrusted to me by You and I pray that You will enable me to bring him up in the fear and nurture of the Lord.

I pray, that he will come to know and love You more with each passing year and that he will grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus. I ask that You will work in his life to conform him into the image and likeness of the Lord, so that it is Christ that is living in him and working through him.

Keep him I pray, from the lust of the flesh and the enticements of the world and give him a deep and ongoing love of Your Word and a desire to know the truth of Scripture. Lead him into the paths of righteousness for Your name's sake. Help him to stand fast in the evil day. This I ask in the precious name of Jesus, who died that we might live,


Heavenly Father, I lay the future of my son before You and pray that in a wonderful way the Holy Spirit may convict him of his need of You and I pray that he may come to know You as his Lord and Saviour.

Lord, I love my son so much, but he has not taken the step to ask You into his life and seems to be disinterested in the things that are eternal. Father, he has been infected by much that is in the world today, and it grieves me to know that my son does not know You Lord, as His Saviour and Friend.

I pray Lord, that whatever it takes, that You would work a mighty work within His heart. I pray that he will come to a realisation of his need of a Saviour and the need to have his sins forgiven. Thank You that You died for my son on the cross, and I pray with my whole heart that he will not reject You forever, but will be brought to his knees before You, repent of his sins and acknowledge You as His Redeemer.

Father, I pray that whatever it takes that You would work in the life of my son to draw Him into Your heavenly kingdom. In Jesus' name I pray,


Thank You, Lord, for my son and I place him into Your blessed hands at this time of trouble, and ask that You would help him to face this season of difficulty with courage and a hope in Christ that will not be shaken, even though the storms of life are raging all around.

I pray that he will keep the Lord Jesus as the anchor of his soul, and that he will maintain both an unwavering trust in Your Word, and a quiet, restful state of mind, despite the mountainous difficulties he is facing and hurtful people that seem to have invaded his life at this time.

May he find his strength in You, together with an abiding peace and deep comfort. Prevent him I pray, from trying to take matters into his own hands in these troublesome times, but rather may he discover Your perfect peace in his heart and gain sufficient strength from Your Word, as he rests and remains in Your love. This I ask in the name of my Saviour, Jesus Christ,


Heavenly Father, I pray that my son would develop into a true man of God and that his life would manifest the godly fruit of the Spirit that You desire to show forth in each of our lives.

You Lord are the light of the world, and I pray that this son of mine would become a shining light reflecting the glory of Jesus in all that he says and does. I pray also, that he would become a man who lives his life in spirit and truth, casting away all the works of darkness, deception and falsehood, and clothing himself with the armour of light, in this increasingly dark and dangerous world.

I pray, that he would be willing to allow the searchlight of Your Holy Spirit to identify in him any areas in his life that may dishonour and displease You, and I ask that You would guide him into all truth, so that in every way he is pleasing in Your sight. May his life be honouring to Your name and may he learn to walk in spirit and truth until his life's end. In Jesus' name I pray,


Dear God, I am so worried about my son. Things in his life have gone from bad to worse, not only at home but further afield, as the pressures of life seem to be bearing down, hard on him. Lord, he is losing the happy disposition he once had and has started to become moody and depressed. Lord, I ask that in Your grace, You would come into his life and meet him at his point of need and restore the joy he had as a younger man.

Lord, I ask You to help him through whatever is causing him these difficulties in life, and help me Lord, to be one that he is able to turn to and confide in, rather than shutting me out of his pain, when all I long to do is to help and encourage him through his problems.

Lord, I know that at one time he knew You, but he now seems so far away from God that I despair that maybe he has not come to a saving knowledge of You. Yet I know that even when we become faithless You remain faithful. Draw him back to Yourself I pray, and build him up until he becomes a mighty man of God. I pray this in Jesus' name and to Your glory,


Heavenly Father, I come to You with thanksgiving in my heart and praise and bless You for the birth of my baby son and the great joy that he is to us.

Thank You for the heritage and gift of children, and like Hannah in the Bible, I want to dedicate my precious son to You Lord. I consecrate his little life to You and pray that You would give me the wisdom to bring him up to know and love the Lord Jesus as his Saviour.

I give him to You Lord, and thank You that you have lent him to me for the first and vital season of his life. Protect him I pray, and keep him from all forms of evil. May he grow up to be a mighty man of God in the days to come. This I ask in the name of Jesus,


Dear Lord,

I come to You today to ask for help. You are my everything. Lord, I need rest. I give You my worry. Take it, Lord. I accept Your peace, love, and understanding. Help me to turn to You and not to myself. Help me to stop doing and start trusting. Help me to wait on Your answers, because I know that they are good. Give me wisdom, hope, and peace. Thank you, Lord, for Your patience and grace. I love You, and I know You love me so much more than I could ever imagine.


Heavenly Father, my child is your greatest gift,

and my biggest challenge!
I know my child is truly distressed,
and yet I am at my wit's end to find a peaceful resolution.

I feel helpless and frustrated.
I ask myself, What would my Heavenly Father
do in His infinite wisdom and beneficence?

Lord, come into my heart and mind,
and share Your loving wisdom with me!
Help my child to heal his pain, and help me
to become as loving and wise a parent, as You are for us

Your children. Thank You Lord, for
hearing me and coming to my aid! Bring your loving Peace to me and my child today.
