Psalm 19:7-8

The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes.

Rather than being a chain on our hands and feet, God’s law is the opposite – it revives us, makes us wise, produces joy and gives light to our path! Those who think we serve a God who is a killjoy doesn’t really know Him.

I pray the prodigal will come to know the value of following God’s laws and be revived with a joyful heart in their obedience to Him.

Psalm 19:7-8

The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving _________’s soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to __________’s heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to __________’s eyes.

Proverbs 14:12, 27

There is a way that seems right to man, but in the end it leads to death…. The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, turning a man from the snares of death.

The enemy will be relentless in trying to convince the prodigal that the road they are traveling is the right one, maybe the only choice they have. He pulls out all deceptive tactics to try and convince them that God doesn’t care about them.

Let’s pray the tactics of the enemy will be exposed in our prodigal’s life; that they will understand the sovereignty of God and see His hand on their life. May these discoveries create a life-giving fountain for them.

Proverbs 14:12, 27

There is a way that seems right to _______, but in the end it leads to death…. The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, turning _______ from the snares of death.

1 Peter 4:19

So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.

One of the greatest lessons of suffering is that I can TRUST Him! We hate to suffer, to see ones we love suffer, but strength and faith are built in the realm of suffering like no other place.

If our prodigals must suffer, I am praying they are learning life lessons that cannot be taken from them…. a rock to stand on down the road when suffering rises up again. May they learn to continue on doing good, even in light of suffering.

1 Peter 4:19

So then, _______ who suffers according to God’s will should commit himself/herself to his/her faithful Creator and continue to do good.

Psalm 5:7-8 (NLT)

Because of your unfailing love, I can enter your house; with deepest awe I will worship at your temple. Lead me in the right path, O Lord, or my enemies will conquer me. Tell me clearly what to do, and show me which way to turn.

What an awesome promise — that the prodigal can stand before the throne, not because of anything they have done but, because of His unfailing love for them! There is no one on earth who loves our prodigal like their Creator.

I pray the prodigal will, one day, worship with awe because they recognize what God’s done for them. May they learn to actively listen to His voice and make choices based on what they hear Him clearly saying.

Psalm 5:7-8 (NLT)

Because of your unfailing love, ________ can enter your house; with deepest awe ________ will worship at your temple. Lead ________in the right path, O Lord, or his/her enemies will conquer him/her. Tell ________ clearly what to do, and show him/her which way to turn.

John 15:7-8 (NLT)

If you stay joined to me and my words remain in you, you may ask whatever you like, and it will be granted. My true disciples produce much fruit. This brings great glory to my Father.

Fruit can only be produced by a branch; a branch that is getting nourishment from a vine, fed from the roots. It is vital for this branch to stay connected to the strong and capable vine in order to produce continual fruit.

I picture our prodigals attached to this vine called Jesus Christ. I pray they will see overwhelming results as they remain there and whatever they ask be granted because it will glorify the Father.

John 15:7-8 (NLT)

If ________ stays joined to me and my words remain in him/her, _______ may ask whatever he/she likes, and it will be granted. My true disciples produce much fruit. This brings great glory to my Father.

Ecclesiastes 7:19

Wisdom makes one wise man more powerful than ten rulers in a city.

My prayer for the prodigal is that they have wisdom; wisdom that is of the Holy Spirit because they have a new desire to be a man (or woman) of God! Godly wisdom is powerful!

Ecclesiastes 7:19

Wisdom makes _______ more powerful than ten rulers in a city.

Matthew 7:11

If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask Him!

Just a reminder on this Father’s Day of what a wonderful heavenly Father we have, one who desires the prodigal to come home so He can lavish extravagant love on them!

I pray your prodigal is on their way home and will soon be confidently asking for the gifts the Father has for them!

Matthew 7:11

If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to ________ who asks Him!
