Would their once healthy, intelligent son have to live with them as an invalid the rest of his life?Word of Matt’s accident quickly spread…and with it, a prayer chain that stretched across the miles. Glen’s own prayers were now a desperate plea for healing. But his greatest struggle was to let go and leave Matt in the Lord’s hands.

What the Robinsons learned about prayer, themselves, and the mysteries of Providence will give you courage to face your greatest trials and to hope in God’s sustaining grace.
