Why me, Lord? Why now?

Unexpected hospital stays and illnesses often take a spiritual toll that we are not used to confronting. As we seek comfort and healing, we struggle to find meaningful words to pray.

This helpful pamphlet offers thirty prayers, each framed by a quote from the Psalms, for facing the spiritual trials of a short-term illness or hospital stay.

Sample Prayer:

Confronting Pain

I hurt. All I can think about is my pain. I am engulfed in pain, and I can't take it much longer.

Jesus, you were nailed to a tree; you know what it's like to be in pain. You know my misery, and I believe you long to take it away from me.

God, if it be your will, take away my pain, but if not, be with me in my suffering. Wrap your loving arms around me and help ease my burden.

In the Garden Of Gethsemane, Jesus, the Father gave you the strength you needed. I beg you to do the same for me.
