Format: Paperback
My husband of 32 years recently decided he was not happy, and left me to be with one of my friends who was a widow. I was and am devastated, and I have read many books on suffering and pain. This was one of the MOST beneficial. I purchased ten copies to give to people who are in pain. Ray Pritchard uses insight and wisdom from God Himself to help others. I am thankful for his journey because through his own pain, he was able to impart comfort for me. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is suffering.

Ray Pritchard lays out the case for all our concerns on the subject of healing using the scripture as the final authority. He also confesses that there are time when Gods plan doesn't match our desired outcome.He tells us how to manage Gods eternal perspective against our limited knowledge. We are learning to submitting our desired out come against a all knowing and wise heavenly Father who is building in us the new man . Just as the temple was built with out the sound of building tools being heard the work on the soul takes place in a environment that can only be reached or changed by the Holy Spirit. The work never stops on the one created in true rightness, holiness, and in every way the image of our God.

This helped me. Ray doesn't have all the answers and he's upfront about that, but he offers some very encouraging words from his experience as a pastor over the years.
