A PRAYER OF DECLARATION FOR THE FATHERLESS
Father, we thank You and praise You that it is Your sovereign will, Your purpose and Your deepest longing and desire ( being accomplished right now) to turn, draw back, fetch home again and restore the fatherless, the disobedient; those unwilling or unable to believe, those unwilling or unable to assent to authority; to turn them to the wisdom of the upright (which is the knowledge and holy love of Your will.) You will do this as Your sovereign act in order to make ready for Yourself a people perfectly adjusted, prepared in spirit, adjusted to fit their place in You; settled, arranged rightly, having a tendency toward Your heart and placed in the right moral state.
There is no place on this earth where You cannot reach them; there is no state of being mentally or emotionally where Your love cannot touch them. Our persuasions, our pleadings and arguments avail nothing, but Your love, Your hand and Your drawing will overcome any and all obstacles — no thought of Yours can be thwarted!
You are light. Even now Y our light is settling on them as the dew; the sparkling dew of heaven – gentle undeniable light…revelation of You…hunger and thirst for You; recognition of the Rock from which they were hewn; recognition of You as Father and as where they belong; their only necessity and reward. You are bringing them to the understanding that the blood of Jesus washes away all of the past and heals every wound.
You will lead them in Your triumph in Christ and through them make evident the fragrance of the knowledge of God everywhere.
We prepare our celebration of their homecoming and Your victory, for it is as sure as the dawn. Your word is forever settled in the Heavens and we stand in and with You to settle it in the earth—on earth as it is in heaven, in the Name of Jesus.

Father, as Elisha prayed for the eyes of his servant to be opened, so I pray for the ears of the fatherless to be opened to hear the voice of wisdom.
Proverbs 8 says that Wisdom has a voice and it is directed to the sons of men. Open the ears of the fatherless to hear Wisdom’s voice as she calls out to them.
Cause them to hear her voice when they are lifted up in pride. Let her voice be heard as they walk on their way, and let it ring out clear where their paths meet; where the choices need to be made.
Magnify in the ears of the fatherless the voice of Wisdom and cause them to turn to Wisdom and receive instruction and knowledge of you. Turn them to her counsel, to hear sound knowledge of you and to the might and power of her understanding so that they may learn to reverently fear You and leave behind pride, arrogance and the evil way, and perverted and twisted speech.
May every fatherless one be arrested by the voice of Wisdom; may her cries be heard.
Thank You, Father, for Wisdom; thank You for her voice; for her excellent instruction to the sons of men. We ask You to magnify instruction and revelation and glorify them for Righteousness’ sake in accordance with Your steadfast and consistent purpose to turn the disobedient to Yourself. We agree with Your purpose!
We rejoice in the fact that no thought of Yours can be thwarted; You have purposed, and You will accomplish all your will. Thank You, Father. in Jesus name.
