Prayer for my troubled and defiant child

My son is 12 yrs old. I am a single parent. My son's father has been in prison since I was 8 months pregnant with him.


My son has been acting out since he was 2 yrs old. He has always been hyper and misunderstood, he has now become increasingly defiant and disrespectful to teachers throughout his childhood and now, me.

I do my best with him but nothing seems to get through. Please pray for my child to calm down and be at peace. Let him see that a change is needed.

He has such a sweet, good heart, but he is so troubled. I try and try. I don't want to lose him to prison or the grave. Please pray also for me.

I too have a defiant child. I pray in agreement that God will move in both our childens life. The teachers and school and turn them over to children that should not belong in the school, but Lord, I pray in Jesus name the you will work a mircle in their lives this week that will show the teachers and school adminstration that the power of the Lord is over their lives. I pled the blood of Jesus over these children. Help their mind and actions, give them peace and calmness.
