The pain and the surprise of disease deeply affects us. It affects our capacity to think and pray. Our relationship with God is affected, sometimes for better, sometimes apparently for worse. We feel new emotions. Disease is truly all encompassing. It is not always easy to know which part of us being most affected.' FROM THE AUTHORS' INTRODUCTION Jointly written by the director and a former chaplain of Burrswood, the renowned centre for the Christian healing ministry, Prayers for Healing is offered as a support for all who are affected by disease, in themselves or in a loved one. Prayers and readings for morning and evening for thirty-one days reflect on a wide range of the bewildering emotions that are experienced at such a time and aim to bring comfort, hope and strength. Every individual's experience of disease is unique, yet the hopes and fears that are the common language or suffering are explored with understanding and compassion.The authors - a priest and a doctor -have accompanied many in their journey through this unfamiliar and often frightening landscape and here is a prayerful distillation of the experience and wisdom they have gained in ministering to those who seek God's healing.
