About this title


You who suffer chronic pain, and you who care about those who do, will profit greatly from the content of these poetic prayers. This book is a thoughtful gift for one whose life is burdened with this unwelcome guest. The author, who suffered many years with pain, puts this seeming enemy in perspective-surprisingly as a friend. Scripture references, specific for each prayer, underscore the thesis of the writer that pain can become our ally instead of our adversary. Pain is portrayed as at first an unwelcome guest in our lives. Then, contrary to common practice, the author, in her own experience, embraced pain as one who brought her closer to God. These prayer poems were written over a span of several years during which the writer suffered intensely. Her account of how she came to terms with this intruder will encourage chronic pain sufferers to reevaluate their circumstances. The values incorporated in these poetic prayers are enormous for those who seek to make sense out of suffering. Amelia Brumm served in the United States Navy during the Korean conflict and later became a social worker in the Department of Social Services. Her positions have included being a caseworker, counselor, and student intern clinical instructor. She's observed the suffering of others as well as her own. She lives with her husband, Dr. Lynn F, Brumm, in East Lansing, Michigan. Pondering these poems prayerfully makes one privy to the most intimate, personal interactions between a suffering soul and the Spirit of God. Like the birth of a newborn child, each poem confirms the power of God, through Calvary's cross, to transform a believer's pain, pressing out our desperate prayers, into a new creation ... good, true and beautiful. Gordon L. Dahnke, Ph.D. Former pastor, author, professor and Fulbright Scholar There are times when God's presence and profound love become known to us. My husband, Utilis Vinson, and I found this presence in Amelia Brumm's poetic expressions of love that arise from heartache, suffering, and gratitude. Her words give comfort and encouragement; and help us understand God's love and redemptive grace. She has touched our hearts, forever. Judith A. Vinson, Ph.D. RN, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, Michigan State University College of Nursing
