USA Best Book Award Finalist for Christian Inspirational
Eighty-eight percent of children raised in an evangelical Christian home will leave the church by the age of eighteen. Most will turn away from authority, parental values, and biblical teaching. Many will squander their God-given gifts, miss out on their potential, lose their health—perhaps even their life. As a parent how can you continue to hope when all seems lost?
In Praying for the Prodigal, Andrea Merrell shares her journey with not one but two prodigals, and how God protected them, restored them, and brought them back from wayward lifestyles, addiction, and despair. She offers practical survival tips to help you keep your sanity in the midst of the crisis. Learn how to establish boundaries, avoid the blame game, and pray the Word of God over your children daily. You will be encouraged by advice straight from the prodigals, and your faith will be strengthened by thirty days of prayers and Scriptures. This book will equip you for the battle ahead and help you hold fast to God's promises, reminding you to never, never give up on your children—no matter how hopeless the situation may seem.
If you are the parent of a prodigal invest a small amount in their future by bathing them in daily prayer.
