Prodigal Daughter
Submitted By:Carrie Ray
Prayer Request:I need prayer for my 14 yr old daughter, Gracie. I am a recovering addict, and I had her when I was 19. I had known the Lord since the tender age of 7 and had a heart for Him until I began to slip into depression around age 14. I got involved with drugs, alcohol and older men around the age of 16. Anyways, I wasn’t the “best” mother for her for several years until God intervened and caused me to lose her, temporarily. She was always with family, but needless to say... she needed me, and I wasn’t there. I have been seeing signs of a generational curse concerning her. And it seems like she is a mirror image of the lost young women I was around her age. She has interests in promiscuity, homosexuality, self-mutilation, and possible interest into the occult. She is completely niece, though and has no clue what she thinks is “cool” is actually the work of the enemy. I have made a radical change and become completely devoted to being the woman God called me to be. It appears to be an attack on my life and hers. I am frightened and with the way you can all see we are in the “end of times”, I fear for her. Like me, she asked the Lord to be the Lord of her life and to come into her heart at age 7. Now, however, she seems to be resentful of me and the difference in the way I raised her and the way I am raising my other two children. They are younger and I can see that “Christianity” is not something she wants or believes is something she can, at all, relate to. I am now finding myself, praying in the Spirit for her every night... on my knees asking God to have His way with her the way he did me. I was lost, a child of light, living in a world of darkness for almost 18 years. I experienced physical, mental, sexual abuse, miscarriage, severe grief, ect ect as a result. I was a “prodigal daughter” that had to suffer as a result of my rebellion and self-righteousness. The very last thing in the world I would ever want for my daughter would be to go through the horrible, unimaginably painful “heartaches” that I went through during these years of my life. I need all my brothers and sisters in Christ to please pray for divine intervention for my daughter. I know that I have a covenant with the King of Kings that permits my children to be spared and seen as “chosen”. I just feel very alone as a single mother of three with only one or two Christian friends that I can go to about these things. For some reason, God put it on my heart to reach out for prayer through The Cross tonight. It is the ONLY thing that I ever listen to in my car and it has come to be a real comport and blessing in my life. If you, whoever you are, would please join me in agreement that my daughter would be spared the pain I endured- it would mean the absolute world to me. I thank you so very much and have faith that the enemy cannot snatch her from Our Father’s hand. I just fear the measures the Lord may have to take or let her experience to finally bring her to the end of herself. Please just keep us in your hearts, thoughts, and prayers. I am eternally grateful to you, my brothers and sisters in Christ for the power and effectiveness I know you will have on our lives. May God bless you, according to His riches in glory!!
