Serious illness and injury are sure to provoke an intense turning to God in prayer. Come, Healing God: Prayers During Illness offers suggestions for praying when one feels lost for words, is overwhelmed by pain or discomfort, or simply wants to know that God is close.
This collection, written by authors experienced in working with the sick, includes Scripture-based prayers, excerpts and prayers from other authors, and supportive sentiments and encouragement. All are short. The prayers deal with many kinds of healing, spiritual and emotional, as well as physical. Some ask for deliverance from illness; others ask for acceptance.
Come, Healing God will be welcomed by seriously ill persons, their families and friends, hospital chaplains, and by those who work with the dying.
