Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.

This insight has enabled her to create a unique and inspiring prayer resource for parish nurses and other health professionals that helps them minister to their patients more effectively.
The book is divided into original meditations and prayers, each designed to give strength and inspiration to busy health professionals in the various situations they encounter in their daily routines. Additionally, the resource includes a list of suggested hymns on the theme of healing and a list of other liturgical resources.
