Elderly Woman Shares Prayer For Wayward Children

Speaking with wisdom, an elderly woman shares prayers for wayward children.


“And who has more power to pray for the child than a mother or father?”

This is one of the questions asked by Esther Walker when she sat down with her daughter, Jennifer Smith, to discuss praying for wayward children.

As Esther highlighted, children are susceptible to attacks by the devil. They are young, impressionable, not as knowledgeable of God’s kingdom. Sometimes children stray from God in youth, sometimes even when they grow to become adults.

Parents can serve their children by not only modeling Christ-like behavior, but praying on their behalf.

“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16


Esther reminds viewers that when you have faith, due to the intercession of Christ, you can enter boldly into prayer. Parents who have wayward children that they wish would turn away from sin are not to be ignored. Parents should pray. This was the prayer she wanted to share with those individuals.

“You can come to God and say Lord, this boy is mine, but he was given to you before he was born. He was given to you after he was born. He is dedicated to you. He’s rightfully yours and the enemy has stolen him away. He’s living in sin and Lord, I can’t find him. I can’t go with him. I can’t follow him. I can’t help him, but you can. I pray that you will speak to his heart. Send somebody to help him. I claim him for you in the name of Jesus Christ. This boy is rightfully yours. This girl is rightfully yours.”

After the prayer, Esther reminds us that “We have to fight for our children.”

Let’s fight for our children through prayer. Let us rely on God and trust him to care not just for us, but also our loved ones.
