In “Praying Our Way Through Stress: Drawing Wisdom from the Lord’s Life and Prayer” (Westbow, 2013), June G. Paul turns to scripture and the words of Jesus as a means of dealing with the stress of modern life with Christ-like behavior. Designed for use by individuals and groups, this book guides readers through detailed analyses of biblical prayers, such as the Lord’s Prayer and the Sermon on the Mount, to help overcome stress in a healthy way. Original poems, songs and prayers also offer insight and inspiration for those working through the manifestations and complications of unresolved stress.

“In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33, NIV).

“When Jesus said we would have trouble in this world, he encouraged us by telling us that he had overcome the world. I think what he meant was that in his heart he overcame all the trouble he had witnessed and experienced. I believe he meant that we could also overcome trouble in our lives and not become unduly stressed by the trouble we witness and experience” (“Praying Our Way Through Stress,” p. 3).
