Pray for Me: Finding Faith in a Crisis by Rick Hamlin

Pray for Me: Finding Faith in a Crisis

In a crisis, all you can do is trust. You have to surrender, and surrender is at the heart of prayer.

When Rick Hamlin was rushed to the ER, he was immediately admitted to the ICU. No quick diagnosis was made, and for two weeks the doctors struggled to keep his body alive as Rick struggled to keep his faith alive. PRAY FOR ME is the story of one man's spiritual odyssey to learn how to pray in a new way as healing slowly came and a medical crisis became a spiritual opportunity--a chance for him to learn he was being called to something new, to be born anew. In the end the doctors were never able to diagnose the cause of his illness, but Rick is convinced that the healing came through prayer.

My Thoughts:

This is one of those rare books where you are left in awe after finishing the book. What Rick Hamlin has been through and how God has shaped his life is incredible. While it wasn't an easy road and he had to walk through a battle, God showed up and did the impossible. The books is mainly about while we face tragedies or difficult circumstances and we don't know how it's going to turn out, we have a God who we can completely rely on, who knows how it's going to turn out. He has us in the palm of his hand. This book is inspiring, it will help you put your life into perspective and it may just help you slow down a bit from the busyness of your life. I give this book a 4/5 stars. Thank you to the publisher for providing a complimentary copy. A favorable review was not required. 

About the Author:
Sometimes I think I must be nuts because for me writing is a way to relax. Sure, I get anxious about it and I'm pretty critical of what I write, wondering if I can ever fix it. But then, when the words come and I'm in a grove, I'm not going to be critical of anything. Until the next morning!
