Walking in the wake of your beloved prodigal's devastation can leave you shell-shocked. Wendy Gorton Hill knows, too well, that indescribable agony. Her heartfelt prayer poems express the anguish she could barely utter after discovering her teen's drug use. With authentic vulnerability, these psalms cover the vast emotions you may experience – embarrassment, helplessness, uncertainty, fear, guilt, anger, regret, and despair. These powerful poems are paired with supplemental scripture and journaling questions.
"Watching the Wayward" can serve as individual devotional, support group discussion starter, or corporate worship liturgy. Hill's words offer profound identification and persistent hope. They pinpoint the best weapons for battle – scripture and prayer.
