While visiting the Holy Land, Amanda answers the prayers of a stranger… and begins an amazing Christmas journey.
Amanda Vance is ambivalent about her husband’s idea for a big family holiday up north. Last year she planned a special Christmas in their own home, carefully preparing a nursery and the keepsake ornaments for their newborn. Now that room stands as empty as her heart.
Then a neighbor’s mishap turns into a last-minute chance for Amanda to take a much-needed vacation to tour the Holy Land.
An extraordinary turn of events allows Amanda to help answer a young mother’s plea for healing. Then, filled with a sense of awe, Amanda visits the place of Jesus’ birth. There she discovers anew the miracle of the Christ child—God incarnate as a tiny, vulnerable baby.
Her return to Florida marks a momentous shift in her soul and in her marriage as she begins to realize that her journey didn’t end in the Holy Land. And that God doesn’t just answer prayers of strangers . . . but also those of her own heart.

Pain. Hurt. Healing.
I wasn’t prepared for the emotional response I had to Prayers of a Stranger. After a difficult year the characters we share our time with in Prayers of a Stranger pull you right into their hearts.
Without being melancholy, Prayers of a Stranger shares the pain and growth of four people at different stages in their lives. A young couple struggling to overcome a recent stillbirth and the possibility of job loss. A retired couple is living off of their dreams and wondering if their family can ever be fixed. The lives of these people and the ones they touch will never be the same.
I loved watching God heal these people. Only His Hand could possibly have maneuvered these people to heal add they heal others.
I thought I’d share this prayer I found in the book with you… “I am the Lord’s servant. May it be to me according to your word.”
