A Mother’s Prayer: 5 of 30

Dear Father,

Please help us see the good in all of this. It feels so like nothing is going on, but I know that’s not true. This silence is just so loud. We want to know what he’s struggling with. We want to help, but know we can’t. Distance is just so hard.

Trusting you are working within him, is so so hard. What you have done to our oldest, is such a miracle. We want nothing less for this child, as well. 

We love him.



A Mother’s Prayer: 4 of 30

Dear Father,

Break through the noise in our son’s head. Let him hear your wisdom. Please muddle up any messages that don’t come from you. Be his clarity.

Please save him from himself. Protect him as he matures from any real physical harm, but wreck him emotionally so that he may come to his senses.

This is so hard, as his parents, watching him struggle and shutting us out. If there is anything we have done or could have done to help him through this, please convict us to make these changes within ourselves now. Show us how we can best help him.

We love him.


A Mother’s Prayer: 3 of 30

Dear Heavenly Father,

Not a day goes by that we don’t think or talk about him. We don’t know if he realizes how much of a hole this family has without him. We are not complete. We look forward to a day when we can be together again.

Until that day, Lord, please work within him. Help him get this figured out. Please help him distinguish what is true within all the lies that has boggled his mind. Help him separate all that out.

We ask that you place a shield around him to protect him from what is not from you. That he might be guarded away from influences that could take him further away from us while he’s in this vulnerable state. 

But ultimately we know you know what is best for him. So we pray your teachings will pierce this stronghold he has placed within himself. If something is to get through, let it be you.

We love him.


A Mother’s Prayer: 2 of 30

Dear Father,

Please walk with our son. Teach him the path he must go to break free from what holds him back from being the young man you designed him to be.

Protect his heart as you do it. May it not turn cold or hard. Help him feel love from those who want to love him.

We love him.


A Mother’s Prayer: 1 of 30

Father I want to ask for forgiveness, grace and mercy. This prayer should have been done a long long time ago. I’m asking you, begging you to please look after and follow our second son, who has drifted away from us. We desperately would like to be reconciled with him.

Since we no longer have a position to act as a guide to him, we have found ourselves completely dependant on you to play that role. 

We know how much you love him. We know you would look after him even if we had not prayed for you to do so, so I’m asking if you could give us peace and mercy. Our hearts ache for him. We worry about him. We pray one day we will be comforted with him.

We love him.

In your Son’s holy name, amen.

Your Angels

Lord, please telling me these people in need, and on the street, are your angels in disguise and are not really suffering. I just don’t think my heart could handle if you told me anything different.

For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’

“Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’

“And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’ – Matthew 25:35-40

If they are not, please reassure me you see them and you are providing for their needs. Instruct me to move on your behalf. What is my part in their plan you have for them? I have no money, but what I have is yours. I can’t believe you would give me your eyes to see them, if you didn’t also equip me to show them your love.

Use me, Lord! Send me! I am suffering too not knowing what to do. I am your servant, Lord. I am theirs.

For your glory,
