The pain and the surprise of disease deeply affects us. It affects our capacity to think and pray. Our relationship with God is affected, sometimes for better, sometimes apparently for worse. We feel new emotions. Disease is truly all encompassing. It is not always easy to know which part of us being most affected.' FROM THE AUTHORS' INTRODUCTION
A collection of prayers and readings, arranged thematically to provide morning and evening meditations for 31 days. Recognising that attention spans are short during illness, each section contains a selection of brief readings that include sentences from scripture, quotations from hymns, prayers and spiritual writing and many new prayers from the authors. The themes cover all the emotional responses to illness from fear, anger, pain, weakness to trust, hope and peace of mind. Based on their extensive experience of working in the Christian healing ministry, this book addresses the real questions that people ask when they face illness, loss or the death of loved ones. This should appeal throughout the Christian market and is a book to be given to anyone facing illness or caring for a family member who is ill.
