This book is an imagined conversation between God and someone who struggles to always believe in their wonderfulness. Sometimes, more often than I like to admit, it is me too. It’s likely all of us. Maybe that’s why the Psalmist wrote it down so long ago in Psalm 139.
I didn’t mean to write this book, but I did. I’m working on another one, too, but for whatever reason, this one feels good and right for this moment. I hope you enjoy it. -- Brian
Don't You Care That We Are Drowning (And Other Unexpected Prayers)
Don't You Care That We Are Drowning? (And Other Unexpected Prayers
The Debut Title from Brian Spahr
How do you pray when you are drowning in grief? In the middle of a crisis? Alone? Afraid?
In, Don't You Care That We Are Drowning? Brian Spahr shares the unexpected prayers of people who cry out to God amid their struggle and suffering and loss. In this short collection of stories, Spahr (a hospital chaplain) takes readers into spaces where bumper sticker faith, pat spiritual answers, and surface-level prayers won’t cut it. He tells stories of real loss, hurt, and suffering while still pointing to God's loving presence through it all.
