Praying for Prodigals is a ministry to

  • care for and support families of children and loved ones who are wandering from God
  • spend dedicated time in prayer for those who are wandering

We believe that you can find hope and peace and joy in the midst of an unsettled and uncertain situation with your children.  Our prayer is that together we can do three things – 

  • love our children unconditionally
  • show them a life that is lived convictionally
  • pray for them continuously  

This last thing…praying for them continuously…may be the most important.

“This is what the Lord says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s.” 

(2 Chronicles 20:15)


Russ and Cindy Leaphart have been married for 30 years and have raised two fantastic children to adulthood.  Their own journey as parents of a prodigal has led them to lean on God for hope and peace and joy in a way they had never imagined.  While Russ and Cindy are still walking through this season, they have complete assurance that God is in control and has a plan for their child.  They invite other parents who are walking through a similar season to come and walk with them.
