28 Days of Prayer: Praying Through a Child’s Illness
28 Days of PrayerWessel Bentley • July 2011
Can I trust God when my child is seriously ill? Wessel Bentley knows the agony of this question, and he writes from his own experience of having a child with severe heart problems.
Bentley understands parents' need for spiritual support when they face the tough task of raising a child with a serious illness. He sensitively guides parents through a 28-day process of prayer, reflection, and practical suggestions for coping with their situation.
The four weeks of readings address these themes:
- Week 1: How Can This Be?
- Week 2: Who Can I Blame?
- Week 3: What Can We Do?
- Week 4: How Can We Live?
Each daily reading supports the weekly theme with a scripture passage, meditation, prayer, and suggestions for deeper thought or practical application. Reflection questions at the back of the book may be used for small-group discussion or further individual exploration.
Praying Through a Child's Illness is a must read for every family dealing with a seriously ill child. Bentley's sensitive reflections will help sustain you through your time of intense difficulty.
