About Her Book – Trophy of Grace: The Prayer Advocate’s Encounter With The Unknown-COVID-19
Trophy of Grace: The Prayer Advocate’s Encounter With The Unknown COVID-19 is about a prayer intercessor’s encounter with COVID-19.
Hearing about God’s healing from prayer is one thing. Living the healing through prayer is another. Often Intercessors are thought to be exempt from suffering. After all, they are the ones who go to God in prayer on others’ behalf. Even Intercessors can not escape their time of suffering.
Having no encounter with COVID-19 can only leave an imagination. Even with hearing the world talk about COVID-19, there is still a puzzle about how the encounter must have felt, what effect it took on the mind, body, soul, and Spirit while encountering COVID-19, and the after-effects.
Within the pages of this book, a journey is shared by Anita J. Merchant, The Prayer Advocate, of her prayer life before, during, and after her encounter with COVID-19.
