When all that is good falls apart, what can good people do? When illness invades, marriages fail, children suffer, and death strikes, what are we to do? In For These Tough Times, bestselling author and pastor Max Lucado reminds us that even when we feel like our lives are out of control, we can rest assured in the knowledge that God is in control.

When tragedy strikes, people desperately search for the why. Believers and unbelievers alike find themselves asking questions, but Max points to the only real answer to the challenges we all face in life: prayer. For These Tough Times reminds us that God is unaltered by our storms and undeterred by our problems. Buildings may fall, careers may crumble, but God does not. Instead, he turns tragedy into triumph.

Compiled and adapted from some of Max's beloved books, For These Tough Times will help you turn to prayer first, reaching toward heaven for hope and healing in your darkest hours. In this brief book, Max will give you the tools and encouragement you need to pray in the midst of life's biggest storms, teaching you that:

  • When you speak, Jesus hears you, and when Jesus hears, the world is changed—all because of prayer
  • When you set your sights on our God, you focus on One who can overcome any storm life may bring
  • Your difficulties and your challenges are preparing you to be a voice of encouragement to your community
  • No matter what pain you're facing, know that although we may not be able to see his purpose or his plan, the Lord of heaven is on his throne and in firm control of the universe and our lives.
