- The author shares wisdom from his pastoral counseling, plus his personal experience of supporting his wife as she lived with breast cancer.
The 28 Days of Prayer Series
Depending on who you ask, it takes 21-28 days to create a habit. The point is to commit for a consecutive number of days. This series follows the same concept. Each book is designed to cover a specific topic and help you develop a daily prayer practice that hopefully continues beyond the 28 days.
