    Dear father God,
    Please take care of my son ishy help him to meet you where he is at. Please place the angels around him to look after his soul and spirit body and mind. Let this isolation be to reach you in this time. May his heart sync with yours. Give him peace and love and your mercy as his actions weren’t just his.

Please Lord wipe the slate clean for him send it far to the east so the word says. Please Lord I pray that you will return my son to me and full of your love and power. As today I don’t feel honourable to stand before and ask these things as my journey with you has somehow dwindled. I am here walking in your righteousness to ask humbly for you to hear my prayer lord. My heart breaks as his heart breaks and it can not go unnoticed. Let not his heart be not troubled with anxiety and worry but he will be still he will know that you are there eternally. All these things I ask in your precious name Amen

I want to thank you for literally carrying us through, even through these trials & hard times. I thank you for being our strength in weakness. I thank you for hearing our cries. I thank you for wiping our tears & for comforting us when it seems that no one is there or understands. I thank you for the unity & camaraderie amongst the mothers on this forum, as we may not know one another personally, but we can resonate & know one another’s pain oh so well.

    Thank lord for being with my son in jail and our family Lord you have answered our prayers and I have strong faith in you Lord I know you will walk my son out of jail a new man inside and out in Jesus name Amen

  21. I pray and stand in agreement

    Father thank you for all that you have already done and continue to do. You alone are worthy of our highest praise. So even now I offer up exalted praise to you. I ask for forgiveness for anything that I may have said, done or thought that is not of you. Remove anything that is not of you, give a clean, renewed hear and a right spirit. Lead along the right path you would have us to go. You are Almighty God, and you have heard my prayers for my and all the mothers son’s. I ask you to comfort us and our sons as we go through. We stand in faith in you and your Word, and we confess VICTORY! in spite of what it looks like. Your grace and mercy will prevail. So we weep no more and look to you. I confess over Kendall and every son mentioned that they will return home from the land of the enemy. You have given your angels charge over them and in in their pathway is life and life abundantly. No weapons formed against them will prosper. You are their shield. You go ahead of them and make every rugged path smooth and every crooked place straight and bring every high place low. A this very moment may they feel your presence and and be receptive as the Holy Spirit speaks and comforts them. Thank you Father for your unconditional love for all the mothers and our sons. We walk not alone and know you are with us every step of the way. In your name Jesus. Amen

    Moms as you are lead, ask the Holy Spirit what specifically He wants you to pray “through” for you son.
    God’s bless each one of you.

  22. My son who is in jail.

    Father Jehovah: i ask you lovingly and tenderly to be with my son Andrew at this very painful time. We are not perfect Father but all of us with these petitions love our sons. The ways of the world have brought them to this place. My son served in the military and at such a young age.He was not mature enough to deal with the horrors of war. It was a different son who came home and he like thousands tried to get by on the alcohol and drugs. In his heart there is love and good. All our sons need your intervention Lord. Have favor, mercy and grace on him and all the others their mothers have petitioned YOU for. With all the love I have in my heart I ask in your son JESUS name and thank you. Shalom

  25. Prayer for my son in prison.

    Please i am a believer: what am about to say is true my son was charged with three ARG ROB. But prayers is the answer he was looking at 30 to 60 years in prison and he is just 16. Because i know he did not do it on his own he was in the car of other 3 adults the police make fake document on him so that they can send him to prison. But because of the God i serves and prayers to him he brings every thing to light , they find out he did not do the robbery but he was in the car at the time these friends of his were committing this crime so he was sentenced 12yrs with lesser charge not arg rob.. So my dear mothers and fathers who are going through the same thing stand strong and don’t let your faith shake our God is always by us listening when we pray…. My crying now is am kindly asking for a joining hands to help me pray for my son for peace, grace, and favor he just turned 17 and i am really worried about him on that other side of the wall. Please let pray against pear pressure for him, he is someone that is so easily convinced. Thank you.

  26. Pray for jonah

    Lord please wrap your arms around my baby boy. Please let the judge and da have grace and a soft heart. Let my son know you are all powerful by making them reduce the charges.

Pray that the judge doesn’t see this as intentional. Lord you are mighty and strong and I know your timing is always perfect. I may not like it but I know it’s your timing. Lord can you please give him another chance? You know his heart and what it will take to turn things around. Thank you lord for all that you do you are a blessing to our family.
