Description

Are you experiencing a wilderness season, where daily, something comes lurching toward you, ready to attack? Are you attempting to go through a normal routine, but there is nothing normal about it? Nothing seems to be working out. Nothing is recognizable. The space is alien, and it seems inescapable. "Lord, Have Mercy" offers five straightforward, powerful prayers to God to help anyone going through a challenging moment in life– a wilderness season. Alvelyn Sanders-Swafford, an ordained minister, pastor, and award-winning filmmaker and writer, shares her personal story of a five-year wilderness season. During that time, prayer was all she had to sustain her. She provides five prayers to reaffirm yourself and remind you that difficult moments may come, but you can overcome them with God's help.
