I was in need and my God provided!
I found this prayer on facebook, on a status posted to “Standing For Our Prodigals” page. They indicated it was for marriages…I am using it to pray for my prodigal.
Lord, deliver my prodigal from the power of darkness, and cause him to put on the armor of light. Help him in his daily walk to put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and Cause him to turn his eyes away from worthless things…to come to his senses, and escape the snare of the devil. Deliver him from immorality, strife, and envy, and draw him close to You, Father, with a true and contrite heart. Create in him a hunger and thirst for You and Your righteousness, and revive him in Your ways. I ask that You fill him with the knowledge of Your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that he might have a walk worthy of You, Lord, fully pleasing You, being fruitful in every good work,and increasing in the knowledge of You, strengthened with all might, according to Your glorious power.
Bring him into the calling that You have predestined for him; help him to serve You with a loyal heart and with a willing mind, and instruct him in the way he should go. Let him be a doer of the Word and not a hearer only, meditating in Your Word day and night. Establish his heart, so he will never be shaken, and show him a way of escape with every temptation. Let him owe no man anything except his love. A love that is in deed and truth, not just in word and speech. Let him be a volunteer serving You in the time of Your power. Seeking first Your kingdom so that he will reap abundant blessings.
I pray that he will honor You with his possessions and with the first-fruits of his increase; Praising the Lord with his whole heart in the assembly of the upright and in the congregation, walking humbly with You Lord, being determined to act justly, loving mercy and righteousness, being gracious and full of compassion. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
