About the Book
A book for parents and family members of those who are far from God, Praying for Your Prodigal draws on insights from AHA to help readers pray--"and hope"--for their prodigal. In this hope-filled, honest book Kyle Idleman offers stories about prodigals specifically for parents and grandparents of prodigals, as well as a series of prayers for readers to work through as they offer their prodigals to God.
About the Author
Heart of a Philanthropist's Take
Can you imagine that God feels the same way for us? We've all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. We've all ripped Him off, spit in His face at the inheritance He's given us- the right to be called children of God. But God waits for us to come back to Him. If our earthly father could feel this way for us, imagine how much more the Father of Life feels towards you!
Praying for Your Prodigal discusses the story of The Prodigal Son in Luke verse by verse. The book is broken down into ten minute chapters. It can easily be read in one sitting, but when you choose to follow it one chapter a day, it has a chance to set into your spirit. The author offers his commentary on the story, prayers from parents of prodigals, a testimony of a prodigal who returned home, and a prayer by Kyle Idleman in each chapter. If you are feeling that your prodigal is beyond ever coming home, this book is for you. Don't give up, and don't feel defeated. Keep praying.
