Healing Words for Healing People
By Deborah L. Patterson
As executive director of the International Parish Nurse Resource Center and author of the highly successful The Essential Parish Nurse, Patterson is keenly aware of the resources that are needed in the health ministry profession. This insight has enabled her to create a unique and inspiring prayer resource for parish nurses and other health professionals that helps them minister to their patients more effectively.
This book is divided into original meditations and prayers, each designed to give strength and inspiration to busy health professionals in the various situations they encounter in their daily routines. Additionally, the resource includes a list of suggested hymns on the theme of healing and a list of other liturgical resources.
