By his grace, he led me to my knees and has been redeeming those broken pieces ever since.We will only be bold enough to pray a prayer of brokenness over our children when we ourselves have been broken before God and trust his love for our children and us.
In that stark white hospital room, the choice before me was clear: be crushed by the weight of my sin or lay the broken pieces of my life at his feet.The pain of my choices was not only destroying me, but creating heartache within our family and severing my relationships with the people who loved me most.By God’s grace, my parents did not give up on me — despite how tempting it must have been at times.Instead, they entrusted my life to God, prayed for my brokenness, and fought for me in prayers that God eventually answered.Parents, if you are raising a seemingly hard-hearted, rebellious son or daughter (whether outwardly or inwardly), I challenge you to take up your arms, fight the spiritual battle that rages over them with all of your God-given strength, and refuse to give up on their life.I encourage you to pray these three prayers over lost children.
It’s incredibly hard to pray for anything but a comfortable, successful, and pain-free life for our children.

Even if your child wants nothing to do with the truth and hates to hear the word of God, they can do nothing to stop you from praying Scripture for them.
He rescued me from my strong enemy and from those who hated me, for they were too mighty for me.
They confronted me in the day of my calamity, but the Lord was my support.
This is another mighty weapon God has given to parents.
