God in the ICU : Suddenly Things Happened That He Never Could Have Imagined
When an anaesthetist started praying with his patients in the Intensive Care Unit, suddenly his practice was transformed. As he relates his story in the context, first of a South Africa transitioning to democracy and then in the Middle East you will hear stories of a God who responds to prayer in ways that are uniquely His. This has the drama of hi-tech medicine, the poignancy of lives that are hanging in the balance, the human touch of a doctor who is trying to understand a God who does not always respond as he would like Him to and above all the inspiration and encouragement of a God who loves us enough to hear us when we pray and to be with us in our moments of deepest need.
