Summary

The simple act of praying
 
---------- 

Wisdom, inspiration and prayer: As recent scientific research shows, the simple act of praying can be emotionally, spiritually, and even physically healing. With Prayers for Hard Times, author Becca Anderson offers solace in bringing together the wisdom of great thinkers, spiritual leaders and writers who have faced difficulty and learned from it.
 

Sacred and inspirational sources: Organized in daybook form, the book draws from sacred sources such as the Bible, the Torah, Buddhist and Native American texts, as well as inspirational writings of:
 
• Elizabeth Gilbert
 
• Joan Didion
 
• Maya Angelou
 
• Rumi
 
• Mark Nepo
 
• Harriet Tubman
 
• Dave Eggars
 
• Abraham Lincoln
 
• Anne Morrow Lindberg
 
• Martin Luther King Jr.
 

Consolation and renewal: Together, these wise words create a tapestry of consolation and renewal for those times when it all seems “too much.” In a world that feels increasingly fragile and, at times, fractured, people need answers and prayers.  Becca Anderson’s collection focuses on prayers for a wide range of life challenges, from the personal to the global. Prayers for Hard Times covers issues facing individuals such as loss of loved ones, illness, anxiety, divorce, depression and addiction, as well as those challenges communities face in natural disasters and violence. The writers in Anderson’s devotional address the world at large, as well, with words of hope and help for global poverty, hunger, war and the environmental. Prayers for Hard Times offers readers solace, comfort, and support, drawing from the wisdom of every era, every major faith and tradition, and the important voices of those who have lived through such experiences themselves

    Staring at the notice, Cassidy Sinclair can't believe she is even considering the offer. What kind of man would be so desperate as to advertise for a wife? Then again, what other options does she have? With her parents and brother dead, she has no family left besides an orphaned seven-year-old niece. They have no home and no money, and there are no jobs available for a thirty-five-year-old spinster in a frontier Kansas town. When she agrees to meet Wendell St. John III, Cassidy has no idea of the adventure she is about to face. The needs of a guilt-stricken widower and his four motherless children, as well as the dangers of life on a prairie ranch, will challenge her faith as nothing else has. Will the pain of her new family's past haunt Cassidy's future? Or will she ultimately find the love for which she has always yearned?
