Scripture for the day is Proverbs 29:3

A child who loves wisdom makes a parent glad,
    but to keep company with prostitutes is to squander one’s substance.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, we know of prodigal sons or daughters, either our own or a friend’s, whose foolish paths are breaking hearts. Give us a resolve to pray extraordinarily for them. Then use our prayers in our lives and theirs. Get glory for yourself and joy for us by bringing them home – not just into our families but into yours. Amen.
