This book of prayer, insight, and support is written by a parent. He experienced shock,doubt, and helplessness when he discovered that his child was seriously ill. Here he does not offer simplistic answers but invites the reader to draw on the strength, love, presence, and wisdom of God. Wessel Bentley offers emotional and relational insights to assist those living with the daily pain of a sick and vulnerable child.

As much as Wessel Bentley is a deep theologian, he is a loving, devoted, and downto-
earth father. He shares the reality of huge concerns and worries about his son’s
condition. He then guides parents with a child who is ill through a simple yet
effective 28-day prayer process. Readers learn how to allow God’s powerful, healing
presence to restore peace, faith, hope, and love into every situation and concern.
