Dear Lord, I am going through turmoil and my life has turned upside down from the day my younger son, Reuben left home on a Sunday without telling me for a woman who is eight years older than him whom he wants to marry without even discussing with me. As a mother, I am heart broken to see my son throw away everything when I had taken care of him as a single parent all these years and he has even turned away from you Lord. I love my son so much and have been there for him every single day of his life but he has now left me. I feel rejected, dejected, neglected and even feel I have failed in bringing up my son in the right way. I blame myself for what has happened and in the deepest of my heart you know the pain I am going through when I see his empty room and I dont know where he is living or what he is doing. I am crushed in my spirit and I am on my knees for you to bring him back a changed man. The woman who has been responsible for the massive change in his spirit filled life and who has taken him away from you Lord, I pray she goes away from his life and Reuben comes back to his old life of dedication to you and start playing the music for you in the church. In Jesus name I pray. Amen !
