Prayer for a son who refuses to confide in his parents

by AB (New Orleans)

Dear Heavenly Father,

I am coming to You to ask that you will open the eyes of my son, JB, and he will recognize the errors of his ways. It is my prayer that he gets to the point where he feels comfortable enough to share his feelings, his experiences, and his doubts with his parents. May he recognize the importance of what I have done for him is for his overall well being.

May he come to gain full knowledge and understanding of what has happened and how this will benefit him in the long run.

Give JB a contrite spirit and renew a right spirit within him. Heavenly Father, help him to understand that wisdom is the principle thing. Let him ask for wisdom and let him grow in this new found understanding.

I pray that he will see the whole picture and not see me as the bad guy. Help him to regain my trust of him and help him to do what is right in the eyes of the Lord.

In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen
