"Michele Howe writes sensitively of the struggles faced by the women she has met whether it is a mother experiencing the sorrow of miscarriage or a single woman aching from the heartbreak of a lost romance. . . . she finds a thread of hope and weaves it into a beautiful, healing reflection and prayer." — Judy Tarjanyi, former religion editor, The Blade, Toledo, Ohio

"Timely and timeless are two words that describe Prayers of Comfort and Strength. If ever there were a time that we need to be drawn to prayer, it is now.

Prayers of Comfort and Strength - review Apr 8, 2004
Michele Howe's latest book, Prayers of Comfort and Strength speaks to women with relevancy and hope. It is an excellent source of encouragement in the face of trial and doubt. Michele illustrates struggles that we all face- both devastating and daily- and helps us to overcome. Every account includes an insightful prayer to direct us back to God for His guidance and mercy.
Prayers of Comfort and Strength Apr 3, 2004
I just finished reading Prayer of Comfort and Strength by Michele Howe and truly feel encouraged to continue on in my christian walk with increased vigor. The book offered many situational stories that described what I and many of my friends are struggling with. The prayers offered seem to put just the right words to my own unspoken concerns and thoughts that at times overwhelm my sense of hope. After reading several of the prayers I felt redirected toward the Lord who is always available to offer me grace and love and renewed hope. Thanks Michele for encouraging a fellow sojourner to go to the source of Hope when things seem hopeless...
