“Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth (Psalm 54:2). Heavenly Father, You are the God who sees (Genesis 16:13). You are the God who hears (Psalm 4:3). You are the God who is faithful to the generations of the righteous (Psalm 100:5). Oh, God I ask for Your mercy and kindness to be poured out on our children, their children, our families, and beyond (Psalm 112:1-2).
God please open the eyes of the ones who have run from You. Open the eyes of the wayward that they will find You, for You are The Way. Open their ears to hear You.
Father, I pray for Your spirit of wisdom, revelation, and knowledge may be poured out on them. I pray that the eyes of their heart may be enlightened so that they will know the hope of Your calling and the riches of the glory of Your inheritance, and the surpassing greatness of Your power toward those who believe (Ephesians 1:17-19).
Jesus, You are the Son of Man who came to seek and save that which was lost (Luke 19:10). Save them, Lord.
God, You search for the lost sheep and joyfully bring them home. You search for that which was lost and rejoice when found. Oh Father, joyfully bring home my lost loved one (Luke 15:3-9).
Thank You, Lord that You hear my voice and my cry (Psalm 116:1), Psalm 34:17). Thank You that nothing is impossible for You! (Luke 1:37). Thank You that one day we will rejoice along with the angels when our loved ones come home (Luke 15:10).
I ask these things in the name of Jesus Christ, who is my Savior. Amen.
