When we hear that a friend is struggling, it can be easy to say, 'I'm praying for you', but harder to know what to actually pray. 

Through forty carefully-chosen Scripture passages, Nancy Guthrie opens up the wealth of scripture to teach us how to pray for those who are hurting. She shows us how the Bible provides us with a vocabulary for prayer that enables us to ask God to achieve what he intends in and through suffering. Nancy teaches us to see how God's purposes are revealed even in our darkest days and encourages us to pray for his will to be done in difficult situations.

Each chapter includes a passage, a short explanation, and a prayer for your friend. Using the QR code at the end of each prayer, you’ll be able to load and send a personal text message to the person you’re praying for so that he or she will know not only that you are praying, but exactly what you are praying.


"When I lie awake through the night watches, I earnestly pray for friends who are suffering greatly. I ask God to stretch their tolerance for pain, stoke the smoking embers of their hopes, and to build in them a rugged, more sturdy faith. And now, I have this excellent guide, I'm Praying for You, to assist me with my intercessions. I couldn't be more thrilled, for my good friend Nancy Guthrie has filled this remarkable work with powerful scriptures and personal wisdom, all of it so timely and practical. After living long with pain and quadriplegia, I know firsthand the enormous impact prayer has on one's ability to persevere through heart-wrenching suffering – so get out your prayer list, open the pages of Nancy's book, and pour the authority of Scripture over the wounds and weary hearts of those for whom you intercede! They will never be the same… and neither will you." 

– Joni Eareckson Tada, founder, Joni and Friends International Disability Center

"The prayers of God's people have always been a precious and priceless gift to me, but never more than during my husband's recent journey with cancer. This wonderful, practical resource from Nancy Guthrie will help you give the gift of encouragement by praying biblically-grounded prayers for friends who are going through the fire and by sharing how you are praying for them that day."

– Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth, Author; Revive Our Hearts founder; and Bible teacher

“This is a beautiful Scripture-grounded and Jesus-centered guide for praying for those who are hurting. Nancy Guthrie is gold and so is this book!”

–  Randy Alcorn, Author; founder and director, Eternal Perspective Ministries

"This book is a brilliant idea. It will help many of us pray for, and encourage, our brothers and sisters who are suffering. I thank God for it."

– Christopher Ash, Writer-in-Residence, Tyndale House, Cambridge

“This unique book is a precious gift for God’s people. In these short, devotional chapters, Nancy Guthrie teaches us to pray more effectively—more specifically and more biblically—for those around us who are going through trials and suffering. Unlike any book on prayer that I’ve ever seen, this is not a book that you simply read… this is a book that you use. And I will use it often!”

− Scott Anderson, President & CEO, Desiring God

"I cannot say enough about this new book by Nancy Guthrie I’m Praying for You It is such a wonderful aid to prayer. Useful for every Christian, but Pastors and ministry workers, you will be especially thankful to have this."

–      Ligon Duncan, Chancellor/CEO of Reformed Theological Seminary; John E. Richards Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology

"This is an absolute gem of a book from Nancy Guthrie. So practical, helpful, and encouraging at the same time! Definitely worth your time."

I'm Praying for You

I cannot recommend this book highly enough! It is clearly the fruit of an author who has walked (and prayed much) through suffering herself as well as having prayed thoughtfully, maturely and biblically for many others. This book is full of ideas of things to pray. Don’t be put off if QR codes aren’t your thing. It’s a nice idea encouraging the pray–er to share with suffering brothers and sisters what is being prayed for them. But you could do this in other ways too. I have found the content of this book massively helpful and practical.

This is a book of 40 one page thoughts/devotions and short prayers with a QR code to scan and send in a text. It is not a book to help you navigate suffering. It has a novelty factor because you can scan and send texts but otherwise isn’t anything extraordinary for £6.99


I'm Praying for You

This book has been such a blessing to myself, and those I have prayed for. I did each devotion then prayed using the template for the person who I felt prompted to for that situation. Sometimes that person was myself. I was then able to text a short encouraging message using the QR code. Highly recommended.

When I saw this book, I knew I needed the help and support it offered in praying for a growing number of close friends who were facing serious suffering. I was not disappointed and indeed am very thankful for it. In the face of feeling helpless to know how to pray it gave me a framework and inspiration from the Bible. I felt I was doing business with the Lord in prayer for the dear friends each day. A wonderful resource that is kept with my daily reading and prayer books that I continue to use as I hear about friends who are struggling. I heartily recommend the book along with others written by Nancy Guthrie. She is a rock solid Bible teacher and author. Thank you Nancy and 10 of those. You continue to be a blessing to the Church with your ministries.
