Praying for a Cure By Mary Nelson

Prayer opens worlds of possibilities—but many people still struggle to pray. Praying for the Cure will help you pray, by offering solid biblical reasons to talk to God and specific prayer starters to guide you in prayer for healing from cancer.  A brand-new entry in Barbour’s Shiloh Run Press lineup, this comforting and encouraging book includes topics such as: His Will, His Grace, His Mercy, His Voice, His Timing, His Provision, His Presence, and His Glory. Written by Mary J. Nelson--speaker, minister of prayer, and cancer survivor--Praying for the Cure will help draw you ever closer to the Ultimate Healer, Jesus Christ.

Mary J. Nelson is an author, speaker, and Pastor of Prayer. She has a passion for helping people encounter God and His goodness in the midst of trials and be empowered and set free to live out their destiny. She emerged from a breast cancer diagnosis in 1999 eager to share how God restored and transformed her life. Her deepest desire is to give away what she has freely received.

Mary is the author of Grace for Each Hour: Through the Breast Cancer Journey (Bethany House, 2005), Hope for Tough Times (Revell, 2009; Soterion 2013), and Peace for Each Hour (Comfort Publishing 2012). Her two latest books will be released by Shiloh Run Press in 2016: Jehovah-Rapha: The God Who Heals, and Power Prayers: Praying for the Cure. Her books inspire those suffering from cancer, health crisis, broken relationships, unemployment, financial failure, or devastating loss by helping them draw close to the heart of God. She founded and leads the Pray for the Cure cancer healing ministry at Hosanna! Church in Lakeville, MN where she also serves as a leader in the Healing Prayer and Sozo inner healing ministry. She and her husband, Howie, have two adult children and two grandchildren, and make their home in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. They enjoy spending time with family, traveling, motorcycling, reading, and serving together as prayer leaders in their local church.
