How Can We Save Our Loved Ones?

He prayed to God to help him conquer that but he felt betrayed by God because he struggled with it for many more years and even gave up trying to preach. He now says that he doesn't even believe in God because if he really existed he would have taken that from him.

How can I try and bring him back to God other than praying for him?"
