A Prayer for Children in Trouble

by cherry grace g. alday
(Pasay City, Philippines)

Dear Lord, you have witnessed the rebelliousness of youth since the very beginnings of time. You understand a parent's anguish and helplessness over the actions of his child. Please help us to transform our anger and frustration into loving care for our child who has gone astray. Help us begin to mend our broken fences and heal our broken hearts. Bless our child and also help him to mend the error of his ways. Help and bless us all to do right in Your name and restore us to peace and tranquility. Amen.

"Forgive the rebellious sins of youth ..." Psalm 25:7

Prayer for my friend and a troubled teen

Please prayer for my dear friend, Lisa and her troubled teenage son, Chase. I no longer see the light shine in her eyes. She is emotionally drained and her faith is being tested more and more each day. Please pray that her son will face his demons and no longer look to drugs for an answer. Please pray that he too can find faith again and use God as his answer. Please pray that the light of God will shine again in her smile and her heart. Amen

Dear God, I know you hear me. I am thankful to have a relationship with you. You have entrusted two of your children to me and I know I have to give them back to you. However, my oldest son is giving us problems. His behavior started changing 2 months ago. I have raised my children to believe in you and turn to you always because you are the truth and the light. God I know you are watching him and protecting him. I love you and trust all that you do.
