Also, let me encourage you to reach out to your prodigal(s) with words of life and healing. Tell them something you admire in them. If you have a broken relationship, begin to take steps to heal it. Tell them you are glad to be his/her parent. Or tell them you think of them all the time and miss them, that you miss having a relationship with them. Ask God what is best for you to say; He knows what will touch their hearts the most. Invite them to dinner, and you pay. And when you are tired of always doing the asking, and perhaps are hurt for the repeated rejection, ask again, or send yet another card or letter or text. Keep plugging. The devil does not stop, and we should not, either. Fight for your prodigal with love.
God is working.
Promise: “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:13 NKJV). “But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it” (Romans 8:25 KJV).
Praise: El Shaddai, The Almighty, All-Sufficient God
Prayer: Our Father, I pray that __________ will come back to our family and other Christians so that we can minister to and protect him/her. Satan is trying to devour __________, but You are El Shaddai, and I ask You to protect him/her from all of Satan’s schemes (1 Peter 5:8). I ask that __________ will long for time with godly people, and that he/she will lose interest in the other things and people that have drawn his/her attention away from You. I see that __________ is cast down, is disquieted inside, has little hope and joy, and is so bound. I pray that he/she will hope in You and praise You for Your help. Please, help him/her to know that he/she is not too far gone to be saved (Psalm 42:5). I pray this in Jesus’ name.
