“The self-willed person is arrogant, and a law unto themselves.  They will not receive advice from anybody, other than like-minded people who believe in their rights to be served before any others can be given.  The Bible warns us not to be self-willed against God’s principles of government in our lives through disobeying the Ten Commandments, as such in (Deuteronomy 21:18-21 NKJV) “If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son who will not obey the voice of his father or the voice of his mother, and who, when they have chastened him, will not heed them, then his father and his mother shall take hold of him and bring him out to the elders of his city, to the gate of his city.  And they shall say to the elders of his city, “This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice, he is a glutton and a drunkard.”  Then all the men of his city shall stone him to death with stones; so you shall put away the evil person from among you, and all Israel shall hear and fear.”  Anybody, reading that Scripture should take warning that God does not approve of self-willed people, and today we have many such people living in our homes – rebellious sons and daughters, who will not listen to the voice of their parents.  What can we do?  Surely not stone them!  But, “With God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26 NKJV), so in all things we are told to make our request to God who is faithful to us who believe and trust in Jesus to save our loved ones from the harmful way of life to destruction a self-willed attitude brings to those who couldn’t care less what anyone tells them, but believe only in themselves, and what they can do for themselves without having to obey any of the Commandments.

There is only one way to approach the matter, and that is by prayer alone as is written in (Philippians 4:6 NKJV) “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”  So then, let’s put our prayer request to God for that self-willed son or daughter, and let God transform them inwardly, by the renewing of their mind, that they may prove what is that good and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2), as follows:

”Lord Jesus I offer to you my thanksgiving and praises, for the (son/daughter) you have blessed my life with.  I come before you now with my thanks for bringing their self-willed character to a close, and bringing them into the true nature and conduct of respect and love of wisdom to hear and obey the voice of God’s authority through their listening to father and mother for their good.

I beseech you Lord Jesus to bring them to know the truth, and the truth will set them free.  For I know, believe, trust and receive all your promises of faithfulness in trusting your will for their good outcomes in life as you have declared in (Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV) “For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

So be it Lord Jesus to do it, for God is and God will provide for them as is written in your Word of truth the Bible in (Psalm 6:9 NKJV) “The Lord has heard my supplication; the Lord will receive my prayer.”  Amen!”
