Prayers for Worried Parents

Prayers and PromisesAmong the many things that parents have to worry about is the child who has chosen the wrong path.  For parents of prodigals, pain and worry is more than a 24 hour a day job.  Thoughts of what they could have and should have done, worried thoughts, frantic thoughts control their minds, their conversations and their prayers.  It is hard to hand them over to the Lord, but that is what they are told to do.  Unless you’ve been there, it’s difficult to understand how they feel.  While some parents are dealing with the wayward child who has or is abusing drugs and alcohol, others may be dealing with a child who has walked away from their faith and travelling another dark road of sin.

Robert J. Morgan knows what it’s like to care for a prodigal.  After taking in a troubled man with a history of drug and alcohol abuse and watching him relapse after six months of progress, all Morgan could do was pray.  As a result of his experience, he penned “Prayers and Promises For Worried Parents” as a guide for parents who are traveling the same journey to encourage them along the way and a guide to help them pray.  Not only does Morgan teach parents how to pray, he also offers hope to those who have become discouraged.

This prayer and devotional guide is also an excellent resource for all parents not just those dealing with prodigal and wayward children.  Morgan’s stories will move you. He also includes promises from God’s Word, quotes from wise Christians, encouragement and hints about coping in difficult times.   If you know a parent who is discouraged about their prodigal child, Morgan’s book would make an excellent gift of encouragement.
