A parent's heart held a dream for his or her child. Now the dream is crumbling, as a child, a teenager, or a young adult in rebellion seems out of reach. There is hope in God's power - the despairing parent is sure - but the words for prayer shift without form in restless thought. The heart is crying out, but there's not enough strength of mind to summon the words. A collection of 180 devotions and prepared biblical prayers, this book puts into words the desperate whispers of the soul. Real-life stories woven throughout the book give hope to the praying parent. Written by a mother who lived through her own prodigal years and then those of her child, the book takes an empathetic approach to this gut-wrenching issue. Through praying God's Word, the despairing parent establishes a new type of spiritual authority in the life of the wandering child. As God turns despair to trust, dreams can break forth anew.
