When God Doesn’t Answer – Believing God Through Longsuffering – Hope for Your Wild Child Prodigal

Does it seem that your prayers are simply bouncing off the ceiling, and you have become bewildered, frustrated and angry? As a mom of a rebellious daughter, I know how tempting it can be to give up, give in and get out. I couldn’t understand how this precious child, my beloved daughter could be so surly, angry, rebellious and downright mean. The more I prayed for my child, the more frustrated I became.
