Introduction to Footsteps of a Prodigal

Today I am introducing a special blog that God has placed on my heart.

I have witnessed, children prodigals, sister prodigals, parent prodigals, and there was a time that I was also a prodigal.

Some of the topics we will be looking at are:

Who Are The Prodigals?
The Making Of a Prodigal
Before They Are Prodigals
Prayer Strategies
Encouragement For Those Who Wait
Prodigal Parents
Praying Home the Prodigals

True stories will be given for encouragement.

Please send me testimonies so we can record them here.

I will be posting (hopefully) twice a week.

We hope you will send us the name of your prodigal,
intercessors will be praying for your prodigal daily.
We would like to hear your story of tears and triumphal praise

This blog is about engaging God through prayer to help us deal with the brokenness
in our family and calling on Him to restore our prodigal to a right relationship with
God and with us.
Maybe you are a parent wanting to prevent your son/daughter from becoming prodigal or you see signs that he/she could be headed in that direction. This blog is for you too! Now is the time to to be on yours knees daily, calling God to send armies of angels to protect and save he/she from any misstep. In hindsight, many of us parents of prodigals wish we had started praying much earlier.

In the prayer below I am going to use the word daughter you can replace with the
name of your prodigal,


Is there anyplace my daughter can go to avoid Your Spirit?
To be out of Your sight?
If she climbs to the sky, You're there!
If she goes underground, You're there!
If she flew on morning's wings
to the far western horizon,
You'd find her in a minute--
You're already there waiting!
Then I said to myself,"Oh, He even sees her in the dark"!
At night she's immersed in the light!
It's a fact: darkness isn't dark to you;
night and day, darkness and light, they're all the same to You.

Oh yes, You shaped my daughter first inside, then out;
You formed her in her mother's womb.
I thank You, High God -- You're breathtaking!
Body and soul, she is marvelously made!
I worship in adoration -- what a creation!
You know her inside and out,
You know every bone in her body;
You know exactly how she was made, bit by bit,
how she was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, You watched her grow from conception, to birth;
all the stages of her life were spread out before You,
The days of her life all prepared
before she'd even lived one day.

Your thoughts -- how rare, how beautiful!
God, I'll never comprehend them!
I couldn't even begin to count them ---
any more than I could count the sand of the sea.
Oh, let me rise in the morning, and live always with You!
And please, God, do away with wickedness for good!
Personalization of Psalm 139:19 MSG

  1. June... love the look of your new blog site!!

  2. There are also prodigal spouses. There are also prodigals who are still following Jesus but don't know they have been gravely deceived by satan to do his will. Satan convenience my beloved that God said our covenant was broken. God NEVER said that as it is contrary to His word. Adultery was never in the picture. Two years ago this June 22nd he left and broke my heart more than words can express. We truly our soul mates, divinely joined by God and satanly separated. Both of us are Christians, during our marriage, the divorce, and still...obviously. I know he's walking with the Lord so he is not a prodigal in that sense but he is still so unaware of how enemy is blinding his eyes and deceiving him to have nothing to do with me. He won't email me or even reply to retrieve some of his things I found. It's so sad. For two years I've believed God will raise a dead, six foot under married just like He raised a dead man. I still believe. But, my journey is tiresome, I get weiry when I so absolutely NO signs of restoration or forgiveness. I pray the Lord will lighten his load, remove his bitterness, anger, pain, unforgiveness, selfishness, rebellion (against God without even knowing it). He believes he is tight with God and to me, that is one of the scariest places to be. Kind of like the ones who believe good people go to Heaven. It's a very scary position. Beloved is missing out on so much of God's plan and His blessings through obedience. He cares so much more about us being obedient than sacrifice or anything else.

    I would deeply covet your prayers. I plan to journey this road and and faithfully (even in moments of doubt) believe He will bring my beloved back.

    In Him,
