You promise that if we train our children in the way they should go that when they are old they won’t depart from it. I believe in your promises, Lord. I trust that you can overcome any destructive decisions that our children make in their life.
Many families experience their young adults going astray from the faith and dappling in the gods of this culture. We know that you love these young people. We know that each one is precious to you. Please do not let these young people be snatched from the Father’s hand. Circle each one with your love. Give them eyes to see the foolishness of this world and help them see clearly your truth. Draw their hearts back to you, so that they are not eternally damaged by their wanderings. Protect them, guide them, and bring them back home to your heart.
Please give grace to the parents of these young people. Give them the words to speak to their sons and daughters. Give them the patience needed to await your miracle in their child’s life. In their grief, restore thier hope. Increase their faith in your promises and in your amazing power to change the course of their child’s life. Restore to them the years that the locust have eaten.
In Jesus name,
Joel 2:25; Luke 17:5; Proverbs 22:6
