When we hear that a friend is struggling, it can be easy to say, 'I'm praying for you', but harder to know what to actually pray.

Through forty carefully-chosen Scripture passages, Nancy Guthrie opens up the wealth of scripture to teach us how to pray for those who are hurting. She shows us how the Bible provides us with a vocabulary for prayer that enables us to ask God to achieve what he intends in and through suffering. Nancy teaches us to see how God's purposes are revealed even in our darkest days and encourages us to pray for his will to be done in difficult situations.

Each chapter includes a passage, a short explanation, and a prayer for your friend. Using the QR code at the end of each prayer, you’ll be able to load and send a personal text message to the person you’re praying for so that he or she will know not only that you are praying, but exactly what you are praying.

When I lie awake through the night watches, I earnestly pray for friends who are suffering greatly. I ask God to stretch their tolerance for pain, stoke the smoking embers of their hopes, and to build in them a rugged, more sturdy faith. And now, I have this excellent guide, I'm Praying for You, to assist me with my intercessions. I couldn't be more thrilled, for my good friend Nancy Guthrie has filled this remarkable work with powerful scriptures and personal wisdom, all of it so timely and practical. After living long with pain and quadriplegia, I know firsthand the enormous impact prayer has on one's ability to persevere through heart-wrenching suffering – so get out your prayer list, open the pages of Nancy's book, and pour the authority of Scripture over the wounds and weary hearts of those for whom you intercede! They will never be the same… and neither will you.

The prayers of God's people have always been a precious and priceless gift to me, but never more than during my husband's recent journey with cancer. This wonderful, practical resource from Nancy Guthrie will help you give the gift of encouragement by praying biblically-grounded prayers for friends who are going through the fire and by sharing how you are praying for them that day.

This book is a brilliant idea. It will help many of us pray for, and encourage, our brothers and sisters who are suffering. I thank God for it.

Customer reviews


“helped me to love and pray for suffering brothers and sisters with more insight”

I bought this book as I was keen to pray biblically informed prayers for several of my friends who were suffering in various ways. It has helped me to commit to praying daily for them, and has enabled me to encourage them and point them to Jesus (I send a text of the content of the prayer and scripture reference each day).
Not only has this book helped me to pray in a wiser way, it has also gently and pastorally helped me to grow in my theology of suffering in a way that equips me to love and serve others better.
I thoroughly recommend it.
