Synopsis

When life throws us curve balls, prayer is often our greatest consolation. In A Cup of Comfort Book of Prayer, ordinary people just like you share the prayers that have brought them closest to God. From Psalm 23 and the Sermon on the Mount to the inspiring words of Anne Bradstreet and St. Francis of Assisi, these are the prayers that people turn to when they most need God's help, people such as:



Paula, who finds confidence in the Breton's Fisherman Prayer when she feels overwhelmed by her role as single mom

Susan, whose chance encounter in a customer service line allows her to share the grace of An Old Irish Blessing with a heartbroken stranger

Clement, who during Operation Desert Storm shared the hope of John Cosin's Lord, Be Thou a Light to My Eyes with a war-torn Kuwaiti family





In this blessed little volume, bestselling authors James Stuart Bell and Susan B. Townsend have collected fifty heartwarming stories of the power of prayer in our lives—a power upon which you can draw to strengthen your resolve, lift your spirits, and sustain your faith, through good times and bad.
