Editorial Reviews

"When your ’mission is remission’ like mine, prayer is the prescription. Read Praying for the Cure through every treatment, every challenge, every tear, and every triumph, and be reminded that God’s love is sufficient to cover any diagnosis."
—Pat Williams, Senior Vice President of the Orlando Magic, author, speaker, cancer survivor

"I never asked for the label of Common Trauma Expert; however, God knew from the beginning that He would provide a powerful purpose through my pain. This is why I appreciate Praying for the Cure. Mary J. Nelson offers cancer patients, their families, and frankly any of us who experience adversity, a unique form of hope and encouragement. Her transparent conversations with God, shared in a fresh style of back and forth dialogue between she and our adoring Father, will inspire you. If you want to know what God really thinks about this dreaded illness and those struck by its insidious tentacles, you must read Praying for the Cure—the truth may surprise you."
—Anita Agers Brooks, Inspirational Business/Life Coach, International Speaker, Award-Winning Author of Getting Through What You Can't Get Over and Other Published Titles

"Mary Nelson’s Praying for the Cure is exceptional! It is a beautiful book of prayer that offers biblical hope, comfort, and strength to anyone battling cancer. Mary, a survivor herself, is dedicated to helping others who find themselves in the midst of this journey. . . . Praying for the Cure will restore your trust and faith in Jehovah-Rapha, the God who heals. Be encouraged and uplifted as you enter into the loving presence of the Ultimate Comforter. Then may you say. . .’It is well with my soul.’ "
—Sue Johnson, Pray for the Cure Prayer Minister, Hosanna! Lutheran Church and 16-Year Breast Cancer Survivor

"Mary Nelson speaks from her own experience, and from her experience in praying with many others, when she encourages you to believe that God can bring you healing from cancer. This book is a conversation between God, scripture, and you. When the fatigue, the confusion, and the busyness of dealing with cancer treatment make it difficult to pray, or when cancer challenges your faith, this book will help you put words to your prayers as you seek to connect with God. May this book strengthen your trust in God as He walks with you through—and beyond—your experience of cancer."
—Carol Peters-Tanksley, M.D., D.Min., OB-Gyn Physician, Ordained Christian Minister, Author of Dr. Carol’s Guide to Women’s Health

"In Mary Nelson's book, Praying for the Cure, we are reminded that when it comes to God, we are never alone. As I experienced my own battle with cancer, I knew I wanted and needed to keep God close. I longed to hear His voice, and I wanted to talk to Him in return. But sometimes it was hard to know how to do that. Fear and doubt would enter my thoughts, creating ’static’ on my lifeline to God. Praying for the Cure provides the perfect resource for clearing away the ’noise’ that keeps us from connecting with the Father. In this beautifully written book, Mary Nelson creates a dialogue with God in every chapter. We receive an intimate message from the Father and also have a guide to the prayers we can share with Him in return. This is an excellent addition to the collection of books written by Mary Nelson. We are all blessed because of Pastor Mary's obedience to God's call on her life.
—Kris Bowe, Cancer Survivor, Pray for the Cure Participant, and Prayer Minister

"Based on her own life story and her experience ministering to others, Mary has created a beautiful gift for those diagnosed with cancer. She not only guides us on a journey of hope but lifts us above our circumstances through the truths of Scripture and an intimate relationship with God. Many lives will forever be changed through the tender and profound wisdom in this book!"
—Julia Holtze, Adult Ministries Pastor, Hosanna!

"Mary Nelson once again has captured the art of bringing God’s promises to life for anyone experiencing cancer or other serious health challenges of any kind. As a three-time cancer survivor (ovarian, kidney, and liver) and Care Pastor of a larger congregation, I cannot say enough about the hope, love, peace, clarity, empowerment and healing the book offers  a cancer sufferer, a supportive friend or family member or anyone helping them medically or spiritually. When things in life are out of our control, God Himself can bring a powerful peace, filling us with trust instead of fear. The personalization of His Word and grace successfully turns an unknown future into a journey through every phase of life through His strength."
—Pat Moe, Care Ministries Pastor, Hosanna! Church, Lakeville, MN

"Pastor Mary Nelson writes out of her personal experience, not untested theory or theology. She has boldly ’prayed for the cure’ with thousands of brokenhearted and feeble-bodied people dealing with the daunting realities of cancer. Physical healing or not, her writing and ministry produce the greatest fruit of all: fortified faith and healed souls."
—Ryan Alexander, Lead Pastor of Hosanna! Church, Lakeville, MN

"As a surgeon, I see patients daily in various stages of their cancer journey. The shock and despair of a cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming. Mary Nelson, in her new book Praying for the Cure, provides patients with a biblically-based guide to help them through their journey with cancer. The typical questions patients have such as, "Why did I get this disease?," "Is God punishing me?," and "Where is God in this illness?" are all beautifully addressed with prayer and scriptures. Patients start their journey with fear and questions but can finish it with hope and a new understanding of God’s love for them after reading through the book. I would recommend Praying for the Cure for any believer dealing with cancer or any serious illness or circumstance. The book contains good advice for dealing with life."
—Theodore Sawchuk M.D., F.A.C.S, Urologic Surgeon, Co-founder Burning Hearts Ministry, Fargo, ND

"Mary Nelson wrote her new book straight from Heavenly Father’s Heart. Those who read, declare, and believe the truths in her book will go from misunderstanding and doubt about God's love and perfect plans to a place of belief, healing, and restoration. Mary's book is not only for those struggling with cancer but also for anyone going through a trial!"
—Mark and Kathy Strandjord, Cofounders of Spirit of Hope Minstries

    'Praying For the Cure', by Mary J. Nelson, is not only a helpful book for those who have cancer, but also their families, friends, and caregivers. It can also be applied and helpful to those who have any other chronic illness.

    Divided into 21 chapters - each a different subject - and followed by prayers pertaining to that particular subject, the book offers scripturally-based answers to the "why?' and numerous other questions one has when undergoing a chronic illness. A cancer survivor herself, the author is very familiar with the emotions and questions a patient with chronic illness encounters.

    Being a victim of cancer for the third time - this time stage 4 metastatic and terminal - I rely on prayer, and the close relationship to God it helps me maintain, to get through the trials of serious illness. The prayers and scriptural messages from God in 'Praying For the Cure' are beautifully written and a huge comfort and help for anyone wanting specific prayers to offer on chronic/serious illness.

    I was provided a copy of 'Praying For the Cure' by Barbour Publishing in exchange for my honest opinion - which I have given.

    Mary J. Nelson has written a wonderful book called Praying for the Cure. It is a book containing hope and help for those stricken with cancer. As a cancer survivor, Ms. Nelson knows the struggles that come with the announcement that you have cancer. It is the scariest sentence you will ever hear. I know, because I am also a cancer survivor. The meditations and prayers that are found in this special book are a gift for those who have been just diagnosed, are receiving treatment, or who are in remission. Even though the cancer may not be present in your body any more, a survivor always has that what if in the back of the mind. Some of the treatments cause so many forms of reactions that its hard to know if the medicine is causing your symptoms or if there is another reason. That is the part that is constantly lurking for a survivor. These meditations and prayers can help those patients keep their faith and their hope alive. I am so pleased that I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review, but the book deserved thata positive review. I would recommend this to family, friend, or yourself if you are suffering from cancer or know someone who is. I think this book would be of help to anyone suffering from any kind of dreaded disease. We can all use the hope it gives.

    When you hear "you have cancer" you are never ready for the overwhelming fear and heaviness that seems to assault you from every angle.

    Only those who have had this struggle or are going through it know how paralyzing it is physically and spiritually.

    After you cry out to God, you hope you will live, you hope it can be cured and you hope for the life you had "before".

    Every emotion changes every day, sometimes minute by minute , as do your prayers.

    It is as you reach your emotional end, you can begin to hope again as you seek God through prayer, that you receive His grace, mercy, and strength.

    This book Praying for the Cure is written by a cancer survivor and pastor, who understands every fear and emotion that can be experienced by a cancer patient.

    She knows how overwhelming even forming a prayer can be, how faith can be tested, and how emotionally draining this disease can be.

    This book is a lifeline to our Heavenly Father, using scripture based prayers for when our words refuse to form because of the heaviness of our hearts,and each chapter opens to read what the Father is speaking through His Word, each sentence becomes a healing balm to your spirit. Each prayer is uplifting and encouraging.

    This book would be a gift of love for cancer survivors, patients , or know someone who is. It would also be a blessing to read and share the prayers together.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Praying for the Cure by Mary J Nelson is a powerful prayer guide for those who have been impacted by the words nobody longs to hear, "You have cancer." While I do not agree with everything Mary writes in this book, I do see this book as a helpful tool to lead anyone toward a deeper relationship with Christ and a more intense prayer life. I caution readers that God may not answer their prayers for a cure this side of heaven. Their healing may only come after they have passed from this life, and only if they have placed their life in His hands first.

    Mary opens each chapter with a narrative from God directed to the reader, my beloved. The remaining portion of the chapter is dedicated to a series of passages of scripture followed by prayer starters for the reader. I found these to be inspirational and a great help, especially for anyone who struggles with how to pray, when to pray, and why to pray. Mary also reminds (or informs) the reader of Gods attributes: wise, sovereign, holy, faithful, loving, powerful, just, merciful, eternal, good, gracious, always present, all knowing. These characteristics of God give us hope when faced with an unbearable burden like cancer.

    This book is a good resource to use alongside the Bible and may be a comfort to anyone who is suffering through an illness.
