Having a life-threatening illness is a constant reminder that today is precious. Prayers and Promises When Facing a Life-Threatening Illness offers encouragement and hope to those who suffer and those who love and care for them. Written by a fellow pilgrim on his own journey with Lou Gehrig s disease, this powerful and inspiring devotional guide offers thirty short reflections to nurture your faith and boost your strength. Each reflection is a small dose of spiritual truth to start or complete your day. Morning selections include a brief prayer and reflection. Evening readings are based on God s promises to encourage and enlighten you. Some of the prayers and promises include: * God, remind me that there is more to life than this disease. * God, give me strength to believe that you can heal me. * God, give me something to laugh about. * God, help me to leave a legacy for my family. * God, I don t feel like praying. After completing the thirty-day cycle, Dr. Dobson encourages you to repeat it again and again for continued spiritual nourishment that is needed during this time."
