PRAYER FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE FALLEN AWAY
(THE BACKSLIDER)

Hosea 14:4; Proverbs 24:16; Isaiah 55:4; 2Thessalonians 2:1-3;
1John 1:9 (1-10); 1John 2:1 (KJV)

Hosea 14:4  I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger
is turned away from him.

Proverbs 24:16  For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but
the wicked shall fall into mischief.

Isaiah 55: 7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his
thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon
him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon

2 Thessalonians 2:1-3
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and
by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by
word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except
there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of
perdition;
1John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And
if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the
righteous:

Father in the Name of Jesus, Lord I thank You for being forgiving and
merciful unto me.  

Lord Jesus I have fallen away from You.  I have gotten caught up with the
cares of this world and chose the wrong path which lead to a wrong way of
living.  At times I have not been faithful in prayer or reading Your Word.  I
have even neglected attending Church services.  I have used many excuses for
not going  to Church or even living according to Your Word.  I have used other
people, or finances, or family and sometimes my job as to why I could not, or
would not serve You.  I would only call on You when I found myself in trouble,
pray only when I needed you, or cry out to you only in a time of crisis; and You
being faithful would answer, but then I would return to my same old way of
living with even more excuses and taking Your love for granted.  I ask that you
forgive me for being so cold hearted and disobedient.  I thank You for Your
Word "that if we confess our sins, that You are faithful and just to forgive us
our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness" (1John 1:9).  I realize now
that it is important for me to have a personal relationship with You.  Lord
Jesus, I surrender my life to You; lead me and guide me in the way You will
have me to go.  I do not want to ever be stagnant again.  I know that there is
absolutely no way in which I can ever live without You being foremost in my
life.  

Now Lord Jesus, I pray that You will restore unto me the joy of my salvation.  
I thank You Lord for loving me and I thank You for Your grace; Jesus I thank
You for healing my backsliding and being my Advocate.  Lord Jesus, I thank
You that salvation and restoration has come to my house.  In Jesus Name I
thank You Lord, Amen.
