The Prayer for Prodigals community is a ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ. It started out of a desire of several staff women to pray for their children who were straying from God.
A specific ministry of PrayerforProdigals.com is the Worldwide Day of Prayer for Prodigals. Every June 2nd, since 2005, thousands of people from around the world pray virtually and in local groups for the now 2000 names on the list of prodigals. The objective of the Worldwide Day of Prayer for Prodigals is to come together to petition God for those we love who are walking away from Him.

Last year and this year, Josh and Sus joined two others in creating eBooks with Judy’s devotional messages, based on the theme for the Worldwide Day of Prayer for Prodigals.
Last year’s theme was GRACE and the previous year’s, REST. Both devotionals are encouraging even if you don’t have a prodigal in your family. Go to Books by Judy on her website to download the book(s). (See NOTES if you need help downloading.)
You can join a secure online community where others who have prodigal children, or whose children have come back to the Lord, can meet together for encouragement and prayer.
You’ll notice if you click on Prayer for Prodigals that you’ll have to be invited in, which can take about four days. The site is private, to reassure the community members that their needs and prayers are safely shared with others who understand what they’re going through. Members can submit specific requests or look through the resources. Read Judy’s post to learn all the details you need.
