For Today: A Prayer When Life Gets Messy will introduce you to a profound daily prayer and various strategies and outlooks for getting through tough days--and on to higher ground. This is not a book to make someone an instant saint; it is for times when the ox is in the ditch or the seed corn is gone--a prayer when you are just trying to make it through the day and get back home before dark. With God's help, you will learn to be faithful in these hard times, and look forward to better days ahead.
This unique book, combining rich personal stories and helpful spiritual reflections, can be used for personal devotionals or in small group discipleship/spiritual formation activities to unpack this powerful prayer line by line. In doing so, you will be challenged to deal with your difficulties gracefully and faithfully, just as God deals with all of us in tough and difficult times, bringing healing and hope to the mess we are in. Ultimately, the prayer brings us full circle--to be a cup of strength to other suffering souls who are in the midst of tough times, too.
