Publishers Description In 124 Prayers for Caregivers, an author with a solid background in grief counseling, offers an emphatic and encouraging presentation of prayerful responses to serving God in the role of caregiver. Each prayer session includes prayers, brief quotations from the Bible or other sources, several lines of reflection, and a closing petition. The book is enhanced by five illustrations. The prayers in Part I, During Light Times in Caregiving, are for the times when the caregiver feels privileged and blessed, needs direction, or becomes aware of the gifts and opportunities for growth that caregiving offers. In Part II, During Dark Times in Caregiving, the prayers are for times when the caregiver feels exhausted, put-upon, inadequate, and self-pitying; when anger, guilt, sadness, depression, and even despair threaten to overwhelm. Whether caring for a parent, a spouse, or a disabled child, caregivers need a source of strength and consolation. Those seeking growth in the experience of caregiving and caregivers in needing prayers that express their desire to give everything over to God will find strength and consolation in this book.

Reviews - What do customers think about 124 Prayers for Caregivers?
short, honest reflections - a blessing Sep 29, 1998
from Buena Vista Ink, S/O 1996: "This small but powerful book is a blessing for someone who works in a hospice, cares for an elderly parent or even a chronically ill person her/himself. Short, honest reflections tied to Scripture or poetry will fit into the busiest person's day."
