It’s intensely personal. You really feel for him as he struggles through horrible health issues. He is so open about both physical and spiritual struggles.

I enjoyed this book and read it pretty quickly. I bumped it down one star because it was written in a somewhat pretentious tone at times (you could definitely tell him and his wife went to Princeton and live in NYC), and it felt a bit melancholy. Rick and his wife belong to the Episcopal Church, so there were some different spiritual references and practices mentioned than those I'm familiar with (I'm Baptist). However, I did enjoy reading Rick's story.

Pray for Me: Finding Faith in a Crisis by Rick Hamlin is Hamlin's autobiographical story of a health crisis that he went through.

They do what you can't do."In Pray for Me, Hamlin shares many details of his health crisis, mostly chapter by chapter, during the nearly two [...]

If you’ve been following me here on , you’ll know that I’m not a big fan of the God-as-Fairy-Godmother approach — that you can pray to God to miraculously cure oneself or someone else. However, my attitude towards this has been changing a bit. I recently read Evan Moffic’s The Happiness Prayer, and came away thinking that prayer might have some kind of healing element to it. Well, here comes another book about the healing power of prayer, but Rick Hamlin’s Pray for Me is remarkab [...]

I sat and read this book in two sittings. It reads like a story and I felt so invested in what the author was sharing about his ordeal. I love how open and honest he is throughout the book and how he shares about his own struggles to pray for himself as he went through this health crisis. I could relate to everything he said and felt.He always comes back to the fact that a God is with us even when we don’t feel it or when we question why. It felt so good to be reminded time and again about the [...]

This is one of those rare books where you are left in awe after finishing the book. What Rick Hamlin has been through and how God has shaped his life is incredible. While it wasn't an easy road and he had to walk through a battle, God showed up and did the impossible.
