Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thy fate is the most common fate of all. Into each life some rain must fall." --Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

This simple quote illustrates the truism that no one is immune from challenges in life. As a gift book or self-purchase, Comfort Prayers is a collection of prayers and poems that offers solace and encouragement.

At different times in life, everyone encounters sorrow, adversity, or a sense of being overwhelmed. Consider Comfort Prayers that motivating friend, wise inner voice, or soothing balm you can turn to when times get tough. The words within are the sage thoughts of those who have survived their own trials and then eloquently imparted their wisdom in the form of a prayer, poem, or prose.

Carefully chosen from more than 4,000 submissions from writers worldwide and more than 1,000 inspirational books, this timeless collection, compiled by author June Cotner, will bring hope, healing, and encouragement to its readers. Like June's successful inspirational collection Graces, this book is composed of 80 percent material from contemporary writers and 20 percent from classic and famous writers, such as Louisa May Alcott, William Wordsworth, and Eleanor Roosevelt. The result is a thoughtful collection that will calm the soul and lead to a path of healing and recovery.
