Father, please help prodigal children not to blame others for their sins, but to be totally honest before You by accepting responsibility for the sins they have committed (Genesis 3:10-13). Blameshifting is not new. All the way back to the garden, when Adam and Eve get caught instead of remorse and repentance they start blaming others. Adam blamed the woman while subtly blaming Good for giving her to him. Eve just blamed the snake. Every parent of a prodigal has heard it. It’s not my fault! It’s her fault, it’s his fault, it’s God’s fault. But repentance begins when we own our own sin. Lord help them be honest before you.
