Based on the book of Psalms, Deliver Us addresses difficult and life-harrowing situations, and offers encouragement on how to get through them. In true Michele Howe style, this book includes thirty chapters composed of real-life accounts, “Take-Away Action Thoughts,” prayers, and insights for when times are dark.
How does one survive a financial crisis? What hope is there for people living with chronic pain? How can couples cope with marital impasses? Each of these true stories is then paired with a specific psalm that communicates the resolve to trust in God’s faithfulness and rescue.
The pairing of these dire-straits situations with a powerfully redemptive psalm offers substantive hope and encouragement in spite of these heartrending experiences.
Key points and features:
- Provides profound guidance and hope through true stories and psalms.
- Includes an essay focusing on the specific chapter topic.
- Includes a “Take-Away Action Thought” for further application.
- Provides prayers and suggestions for how to use psalms.
