Cancer can't be explained away. No amount of Christian cliches will decrease its power. And even the most understanding friend or loving spouse can't truly know the fear, the doubt, the anger and the pain that comes with a diagnosis. Praying Through Cancer is a daily devotional written specifically for cancer patients by cancer survivors with insight, wisdom and clarity found only through personal trial. Even with cancer, an uncertain future and a complete lack of control, it is possible to experience the grace and provision of Christ's love. The focus of each daily devotional is prayer - personal encounters with God - the kind where fears and anger are transformed into confident expectation and pure worship. Readers will feel as though they are meeting kindred spirits, old friends who will come alongside them in their journey, encouraging them and understanding what no one else can. It is possible to battle cancer and know God's peace - not because that's the easy answer - but because these women did it and they want the same for you.
You don?t have to face cancer alone
Traumatized and terrified of cancer? Perhaps you have been diagnosed yourself, or you have a friend or family member who is battling with the disease. You know you must face it?but you do not have to face it alone. Praying Through Cancer is a collection of stories by women who have faced cancer and, with triumphant spirits, found comfort and sometimes even joy in the midst of it.
For these women, cancer was a comma, not a period, in the sentences of their lives. Why? Because they put their faith in the Lord and He strengthened them beyond comprehension. You will laugh and you will cry, but best of all, you will know . . . you are not alone.
