And Jesus said to Zacchaeus, “ Today salvation has come to this house…
for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” (Luke 19:9)


Heavenly Father, as much as I love my child I know that You love them more.  I come to You interceding on behalf of my unsaved child.  Please visit our home.  With great anticipation and faith I speak to my family, “Today salvation has come to this house”.  We need a visitation from You now Lord! Your Word says, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household” Because I have believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, I am confident that through the work of the Holy Spirit, my child will soon believe as well and be saved. I speak the spirit of the adoption over my child’s life right now in the name of Jesus.  Stir within them a yearning, an unquenchable desire to know You and live for You.  Bring such heavy waves of conviction over them that he will find no rest until they have given in to Your relentless love.  May they find the contentment and purpose that comes only from You. 

Satan, you come only to steal, kill and destroy, and in the name of Jesus Christ, I forbid you from stealing my child, killing our hopes, and destroying the promise of salvation God has given our family.  And by the authority of the name of Jesus, I command you to leave my family alone right now!!  Heavenly Father I ask You in Your son’s Jesus name to reveal Your presence to the enemy and to my child.  Please open my child’s eyes and ears to the work of Your Holy Spirit.  Give them a vision of Your Grace and Mercy because it’s Your kindness that leads us to repentance.  Let them hear You calling his name, and bring other believers into my child’s life to point them towards You.

I refuse to give up on my child because You refused to give up on me.  When I was faithless, You remained faithful.  Even when Israel had given herself over to other gods, You remained true to Your commitment of faithfulness.  Therefore, with boldness I come before Your throne and declare that I will stand in the gap on behalf of my child until the day of salvation.   My deepest desire is to spend eternity in Your presence with my family at my side.  I will stand on Your word and decree this in our lives in the name of Jesus.

In Jesus name I pray, Amen
