Trouble falls on us all, and sometimes at the most
inopportune times. It happens not just to our loved ones,
but to strangers we may never see again, yet who God
wants us to lift up nevertheless: waiters, cab drivers, a
fellow student at a coffeehouse, the widower sitting next
to us in the waiting room, a stressed mom with kids in
the checkout line, someone at the gym. It's not always
easy to know what to say in those "divine encounters,"
but Prayers to Share: 100 Pass-Along Notes for Peace
provides something that anyone can do.
