Prophetic Word for 2020: Your Prodigals Will Come Home

by | Jan 16, 2020 | Woman

I have heard the Lord say 2020 is the year that prodigals will be coming home! Those for whom you have been earnestly praying will return home this year and to the faith of their childhood.

It is of vital importance that you continue to pray, to press in, to believe and to declare the Word of God over the prodigals in your life. Now is not the time to throw in the towel or to give in to defeatist thinking but it is the year to increase time on your knees as you are fighting in the final skirmish of this prolonged battle.

I have always asked the Father for a specific Scripture to pray over those loved ones in my life whose heart has turned away from the Lord. One of the passages in the Bible that I pray often over my prodigals is this one:

“I do not cease giving thanks for you, while making mention of you in my prayers; that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe” (Eph. 1:16-19a, NASB).

As I was lingering over those words on January 1, and praying specifically for those that I love, a portion of this Scripture suddenly jumped off of the page of my well-worn Bible. “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened,” were the words that became vibrantly alive to me in that moment on the very first day of 2020.

I began to pray for 2020 spiritual vision in the year 2020. I heard the confirmation of the Holy Spirit as we fought together.

—I believe that this is the year that the great physician will heal the spiritual eyes of those who have been blinded by culture, by sin and by humanism.

—I believe 2020 is the time when blinders will be removed and that clear vision will be restored.

—I believe those who have grown short-sighted will be short-sighted no longer, but they will see as the Father sees in 2020.

—I believe those whose eyes have wandered from the truth of Scripture will regain spiritual focus and will relearn how to read the Word with the eyes of faith in the year 2020.

God is healing the spiritual vision of those for whom you have been praying! Never doubt it! 2020 is the year when blind spiritual eyes will be opened in dramatic and miraculous ways!

I would love to pray for your prodigals. You can email me at carol@carolmcleodministries with the names of your loved ones. I would love to join my heart with yours in praying that 2020 is the year your prodigal will come home. I am standing in faith with you today that this is the year the eyes of their hearts will be enlightened. {eoa}
