Here’s a prayer inspired by the parable of the prodigal son (Luke 15:1-3, 11-32). It comes from the website of the Presbyterian Church (USA).
(inspired by Luke 15:1-3, 11-32)
God of the lost, the least,
and all who long for home,
when we wander from your ways
and waste the gifts you have given us,
welcome us back, we pray,
so that we may celebrate and rejoice
in your presence forever;
through Jesus Christ your beloved Son.
