Lord, I lift up this young man to you, that you draw him to Yourself and quickly.  We plead in Jesus name, that Lori's friend would keep abiding in You for her strength to carry her through this difficult season. Let he love for her son show Your love in her.

 

Bring the prodigals home LORD, PLEASE!!

Father I pray that just as you allowed the prodigal son to stray only to later come back to his senses and return to his father, and how his father welcomed him back with joy and celebration that you would have this straying son likewise come back to his senses and return to You that you might rejoice over this one that is straying, or just as You went to find the one lost sheep out of the hundred that was lost, that you would find this one and carry him back into the fold. 

 

In the precious name of Your Son, Christ Jesus

Amen

Abba Father, we do come to you thanking You that You love this young man and his mother perfectly. Thank You that You meet all our need.  Thank You that we can come to You praying in behalf of one another.  Hear our prayers O LORD and help this young man to come to You and to worship You in spirit and in truth.  Help him and help his mother as only You can.  Please grant him to know You and be saved to the uttermost.  In Your name Lord Jesus, please and thank you, amen.

 

Abba Father, sometimes we Mommas and Grandmas have deep concerns for our children and our grandchildren please help us.... Thank you again and again for the blood of Jesus and that we can come to You in Jesus' name, amen.

 

Psa 138:8 The LORD will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O LORD, endures forever; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.
