London: Hollywood legend Martin Sheen has revealed that he prays for his troubled son Charlie.

The ‘West Wing’ star said the actor, who has fought a well-documented battle with drugs and checked into rehab last month, had the backing of his family, reports the Telegraph.

When asked how he was supporting his son, Sheen replied: “With prayer. We lift him up and we ask everyone who cares about him to lift him up, and lift up all those who are in the grip of drug and alcohol abuse, because they are looking for transcendence.”

The 70-year-old was speaking at the UK premiere of his new pilgrimage film ‘The Way’ at London``s British Film Institute.
