What should you do when serious illness strikes? What steps can you take to pursue healing? How can you approach God in prayer when you are sick?

Douglas Connelly has gleaned from the biblical record five steps that every Christian should take during illness. These steps of obedience and faith acknowledge both God's sovereign power over us and his ability to met our deepest needs:

  • pray for God's healing
  • seek medical help
  • confess any known sin in your life
  • ask to be anointed
  • rest fully in God's care

This booklet will comfort you when you are ill and encourage you to confess "But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge" (Psalm 73:28).
