New every morning is your love, great God of light, and all day long you are working for good in the world. Stir up in us desire to serve you, to live peacefully with our neighbors and all your creation, and to devote each day to your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Our first reaction when the doctor says it's cancer: Why me?

Receiving a cancer diagnosis is traumatic, both for the person diagnosed and family and friends. Todd Outcalt writes from the perspective of a husband who has accompanied his wife, a breast cancer survivor, through her cancer journey.

Praying Through Cancer is a practical guide for anyone seeking strength, support, and hope for coping with cancer. This personal book addresses the raw emotions and deep questions evoked by cancer. Each devotion helps the reader encounter God through comforting scriptures, insightful reflections, and heartfelt prayers.

  • Daily readings provide an uplifting connection with God to help readers face their situation with faith and hope.
  • Reflection questions for family conversation or group discussion (especially cancer support groups).
  • The author shares wisdom from his pastoral counseling, plus his personal experience of supporting his wife as she lived with breast cancer.

The 28 Days of Prayer Series

Depending on who you ask, it takes 21-28 days to create a habit. The point is to commit for a consecutive number of days. This series follows the same concept. Each book is designed to cover a specific topic and help you develop a daily prayer practice that hopefully continues beyond the 28 days.

Todd Outcalt is senior pastor of Calvary United Methodist Church in Brownsburg, Indiana. He is the author of more than 30 books.
