The Lord gave me a prayer this morning for parents to pray over their wayward children. It is especially powerful for praying over children who are in or who are attracted to the drugs & gang lifestyles.

Please share this prayer with as many other parents as you can. The Lord spoke this morning that Satan is after our children more now than ever before.

The text of the prayer is shown below and also posted in the prayers tab on the JPH site. At the end of the prayer is a recording of me praying the prayer:

Prayer for a Wayward Child

Lord God in heaven, I praise Your Holy Name. I know in so many things, Lord, You are my only hope. You are bigger than any problem, You are greater than any enemy. I know You delight in showing Yourself mighty on my behalf.

Lord, You see the situation with this wayward child. I have prayed and he/she is still going down the wrong path, Lord, but I know You are more than able, Lord, to set my child right. I know You want to set him/her set right even more than I do! I know You love him/her even more than I do, Lord, so I bring this situation to You. Lord, I’m going to take my hands off of this and watch You work. I’m expecting a miracle, Lord!

Lord, I know satan is trying to put my child in the pigpen, but I declare he will NOT GET MY CHILD! I know now he will have to fight YOU to do that, Lord, because I am giving this child to You and I know You will do whatever is necessary to save my child, Lord.

Lord, I ask you to rope my child into the sheep fold of Your people. I ask You, Lord, to do whatever is necessary to get my child saved, Lord – Save him/her from his/her habits and addictions, Lord – You are greater than ANY addiction, God, and I know ONE TOUCH from You and that addiction is NO MORE. I know You know what it will take to reach my child’s heart. Lord, even if You have to break their legs and wrap them around Your neck and carry them close to You as they heal to get them saved, do it Lord! Do it so they will go to heaven and not hell. Do it so they won’t become another statistic of the gang life, another statistic of the overdoses in the newspaper, Lord. NO!! My child shall live and NOT DIE in the mighty Name of Jesus!!! I know You won’t let satan have his way with him/her, Lord! Because I will not cease to pray, Lord, and I will not let you go until You bless my child!

Make my child fall in love with You and Your Word, increase them in the knowledge of You as You cover them with Your feathers, strengthen them against tragedies and lack, bond them to your Word. Teach him/her wisdom, Lord! Shower him/her in love and mercy, be his/her shield and buckler, Lord! Show him/her whatever he/she needs to see to cling to You and come out of his/her habits, addictions and the world’s ways, Lord.

I know You have given my child gifts and talents to use for Your Kingdom, Lord, and I pray You will stir up those gifts and draw my child into Kingdom work – I know he/she will have peace when he/she is fulfilling Your purpose for his/her life.

Lord, Your Word says if I decree a thing, it is established. I decree My child is saved. I decree My child is living a godly life for You. I decree My child is free of all bad habits and addictions. I decree my child is free of that dangerous lifestyle, free of lawlessness, free of any gang affiliations and protected by You, oh Lord, because I know You hear the fervent prayers of praying mamas and righteous men. And I know You answer when we pray in accordance with Your will, so I call it DONE, Lord, in Jesus Name!

Lord, I ask for the grace to keep my hands off of this situation while You work. Thank You, Lord.

One thought on “Prayer for Wayward Children – Glynda Lomax”

  1. This post came in perfect timing following my own personal experience yesterday confirming this Word! By the Lord’s leading & will I’m living in an RV motor home at the moment, parked in a normally quiet local store parking lot overnight in remote Alaska. At about 1:30 AM early Sunday morning I was in prayer inside my RV when I heard what sounded like a herd of moose running towards me. As I listened, the sound of running feet grew nearer & nearer to my location, & then suddenly something banged hard against the side of my home! I jumped up to see what happened, & by the time I got the door open & looked out I saw ‘a gang’ of young adolescent teen boys & girls, all running away out the other side of the parking lot as fast as they could go. For a few minutes I let it go, thinking I needed to refocus on my prayers. But then, I began to feel concern for these young ones, wondering how in the world so many local neighborhood kids can gang up together in the middle of the night & run wild without their parents knowing it? Then I felt a strong holy Spirit leading to pray for them, as they are obviously all headed in the wrong direction. Then I began to see their actions as a ‘cry for help’ instead of an attack against me. As I began praying for them the thought crossed my mind that I might be the only one in the lives of some of these children who ever really seriously prayed for their safety, well-being, & salvation? And so with a growing heart of love & compassion for them I began to intercede on behalf of them, asking for the Lord’s divine intervention in their lives, a spiritual awakening, and that He would divinely draw these kids directly to Him before it is too late for them…
    Later in the day when I went online & saw Glynda’s Word posted, I was nearly blown away to see how it so closely echoed the same general prayer outline that I had just used for these wayward kids here in my own neighborhood! The kids don’t have to belong to you to pray like this, just realize that each of them belong to Jesus & our Kingdom Family! Who knows if our sincere heart-felt prayers might make the saving grace difference between some of these young ones ending up in hell or not? rick
