About the Book

Drawing from his experiences as a family practice physician for the past 30 years, Dr. McAfee provides true and captivating stories from his career in medicine. Ranging from humorous to heart-rending, these narratives offer brief glimpses into the lives of Dr. McAfee’s patients, with practical lessons regarding prayer woven into each account. Intellectual study of the subject of prayer, valuable as that is, typically does not move our hearts to deeper prayer in the same way that stories do. For Christians young and old who wish to live a life of enriched prayer—knowing God’s presence as well as His precepts—these stories help provide the tangible means to achieve that goal.
