About this item
Several years ago, I underwent a particularly challenging time, facing—only six weeks apart—the unexpected deaths of my brother and my father. And then, my marriage of 30 years imploded.Bereft and filled with grief and anger, I got down on my knees and prayed for healing, as no other effort brought relief. What followed in answer to my prayers was the unexpected, intuitive guidance to walk—alone—the legendary Camino de Santiago, an 800-kilometer (500-mile) ancient pilgrimage over the Pyrenees and across Spain . . .With prayer as my constant companion and greatest source of strength, I was able to complete this arduous journey . . . and with it heal a lifetime of emotional pain and heartache, as well as discover a deep and lasting peace in my heart.The power of prayer during that time is what inspired me to write this little prayer book.More than any other moment in my entire life, I needed and asked for extra help in facing the challenges before me with endless prayers . . . all of which kept me grounded, comforted, and able to move through the difficulties before me with grace. At times, my only prayers were Help me, please, and Thank you. Thank you. Thank you in advance for answering my prayer. Those were enough. My prayers were heard and answered, many beyond my wildest dreams.
