The Following Prayer is from

Prayer for my Child and Loved Ones 


For a daughter

Please adapt for your loved one.


I cry out to you in the quiet of the night.

In the quiet of the night there are no distractions;
there is nothing
to draw my attention away
from my daughter
and my fervent prayer request
for my daughter.

I call out to you,
but there are no answers to my questions.

Why isn’t she turning her life over to you?

Why isn’t she running into your arms?

Why doesn’t she want to live for you?

Pour your compassion on my daughter.

Let your compassion run all over her situation.

Pour your compassion on the longing of my
parental heart
of love.

I wait, Lord.

I cry out for my daughter – day after day.

I ask again that you would bring my daughter into a solid, growing relationship with you.

I pray this prayer in the

Mighty and Transforming Name of Jesus Christ,

The Song above is based on

Luke 15:11-24

see below

Jesus told us this story...

And he [Jesus] said,

 “There was a man who had two sons. 

12 And the younger of them said to his father,
‘Father, give me the share of property
that is coming to me.’
And he [the father] divided his property between them. 

13 Not many days later, the younger son gathered all he had and took a journey into a far country, and there he squandered his property in reckless living. 

14 And when he had spent everything,
a severe famine arose in that country,
and he began to be in need.

 15 So he went and hired himself out to one of the citizens of that country, who sent him into his fields to feed pigs. 

16 And he was longing to be fed with the pods that the pigs ate, and no one gave him anything.

17 “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father's hired servants have more than enough bread, but I perish here with hunger!

 18-19 I will arise and go to my father, and I will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you.  I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Treat me as one of your hired servants.”’

 20 And he arose and came to his father.

But while he was still a long way off,

his father saw him and felt compassion,

and ran and embraced him and kissed him.

 21 And the son said to him,
‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’

 22 But the father said to his servants, 
‘Bring quickly the best robe, and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet. 

23 And bring the fattened calf and kill it, and let us eat and celebrate. 

24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again;

he was lost, and is found.’

And they began to celebrate.
