HOPE FOR YOUR PRODIGAL . HELP FOR YOU
Worrying about our loved ones is the worst kind of worry in the world, especially when it’s our children for whom we’re concerned. From the moment they’re born, our youngsters have an unrivaled place in our hearts, and we feel an unending burden for their welfare. We do our best to provide for them and to protect them. But sometimes, like the prodigal’s father in Luke 15, all we can do is entrust them to the Lord, love them, and give them time to find their way. Nothing is more difficult.
Prayers and Promises for Worried Parents offers hope for your prodigal and help for you. In more than a hundred brief readings, Robert J. Morgan offers doses of hope—encouragements from Scripture, effective prayers, true-life stories, promises from God’s Word, timely quotes, and helpful hints for coping with yourself and your child in difficult times.
God specializes in being gracious, and prodigals have a way of coming home. Don’t despair over your wayward ones. The Lord hasn’t given up on them. Nor on you!

"Most Christians have a family member who is or was a prodigal. By skillfully using pertinent Bible verses and relating remarkable answers to the prayers and faith of parents with prodigals, Rob’s book offers hope and comfort to readers. I heartily recommend Prayers and Promises for Worried Parents. You will be blessed!"
“One person has described praying as the most neglected work of the Church. Robert Morgan has provided examples of the historical impact of prayers in the lives of believers and the promises that are ours in the Scriptures accessed through prayer. It seems that our children can send us to our knees quickly and keep us there for a long time. Prayers and Promises for Worried Parents is a timely help for burdened parents.”
“In Prayers and Promises for Worried Parents, Robert Morgan writes from his own experiences. This book is a great help for parents who are desperate for answers! The book encouraged me to express my heart to God specifically and in detail. My prayer life has been blessed and strengthened as a result.”
"Practical. Powerful. Perceptive. Personal. Prayerful. Rob Morgan has crafted a wonderful handbook for all of us with children or friends that are looking for answers in 'all the wrong places.' He teaches all of us that our God listens with great interests to our prayers and gives courage to those that diligently seek Him. Rob carefully takes each of us to the place where prayer and scripture intersect and shows how to find healing, rest, hope, comfort, and joy even in the midst of deep and passionate struggle. A must read for every parent."
