“Parenting a prodigal is a tough and mostly thankless task. And too often it is lonely. I can attest to that fact that prayer is what sustains me—often at three in the morning when all I can utter is ‘Help!’ This book of prayers for prodigals isn’t just a handy tool; it’s a reminder we are not alone. Written with transparent honesty and love—and straight from the trenches—it’s a sincere and much-needed comfort to a parent’s aching heart.”
Melody Carlson, award-winning author of more than 200 books including Lost Boys and the Moms Who Love Them

“Every time you look at your child, you know you have a problem. And everyone seems to have an ‘if I were you…’ answer. ‘Get tough,’ one says. ‘Be strict enough to force him to change.’ ‘She is no longer a child,’ another admonishes. ‘Don’t baby her.’ You know you have a problem. You know you must do something. But what? In this powerful little book, Linda Clare—who understands your conflict firsthand—shares her reason for hope.”
Kay Marshall Strom, award-winning author and twenty-first century abolitionist

Prayers for Parents of Prodigals offers readers honesty, encouragement, and much-needed words to confirm a prodigal parent’s experience. This devotional is perfect for anyone navigating the often-tumultuous journey of prodigals. This will bring solace and much-needed hope.”
Mary DeMuth, author of Healing Every Day

Prayers for Parents of Prodigals walks through the pain, agony, and heartbreak of loving a child who shatters boundaries designed to protect. Linda Clare’s transparency and authentic cries to the Lord will inspire and comfort the squeezing of your heart. Her raw authenticity, like balm on an open wound, offers a soft place to land while waiting to celebrate the return of the prodigal child. As you cautiously wait to exhale, her wisdom restores like a rescue breath. Stop. Rest your soul. Allow each prayer to rebuild your hope.”
