Prayer for my child's distress
Heavenly Father, my child is your greatest gift, and my biggest challenge! I know my child is truly distressed, and yet I am at my wit's end to find a peaceful resolution and to help her overcome her anguish and pain. She is 18 years old and needs God's guidance. She has gone astray, has got into some bad company and is defiant and does not want to obey me. She needs your infinite Love, blessing and protection. Help her to seek your blessing.
She is confused with the boy she is in love with. Both are finding it difficult to understand and respect one another. Help her Lord Jesus. She is emotionally and mentally very weak and is always dependent on her boyfriend. Help her to be more outgoing and mix around with other friends. Help her to be confident, independent, caring and loving child. Help her to concentrate on her upcoming exams. Lord, please give her this wisdowm and understanding. Only you can help us O Lord.
I feel helpless and frustrated. I ask myself, What would my Heavenly Father do in His infinite wisdom and beneficence?
Lord, come into my heart and mind, and share Your loving wisdom with me! Help my child to heal her pain, and help me to become as loving and wise a parent, as You are for us Your children. Thank You Lord, for hearing me and coming to my aid! Bring your loving Peace to me and my child today.
