It does not matter how many friends and family you have or how often you see your therapist going through a difficult time is a solo event. PRAY THE SCRIPTURES WHEN LIFE HURTS by Kevin Johnson validates the emotions and points the reader in the direction of hope and healing.
Agony, Loneliness, Questions, Resentment Requests, Frustration, Peace, Surrender and Hope are not just chapter titles they are words that describe the experiences of many. The format of each chapter is easy to follow as an individual or in a group setting. There are numerous Bible verses which facilitate the reader examining his or her feeling.
PRAY THE SCRIPTURES shares the emotional place the author was in during a time of adversity. Many will tell you there is no easy way to cope with pain, even drugs cannot help you escape, it is only through faith that you are able to go through the valley and not go to.
PRAY THE SCRIPTURES is not a book of prayers that incorporates Bible verses but a book of Bible Verses that can be incorporated in ones prayer. There are all types of pain all sorts of reasons a person may feel hopeless but PRAY THE SCRIPTURES can help anyone who believes. By using this book as a healing tool the reader or group leader will open the door for the Holy Spirit to do what drugs or man cannot restore the believer.
