  5. I do not feel qualified for this honor, but I do have the time to pray and I’ve already started. I am so excited I can hardly breathe. This is one of the best gifts I have ever received.

    Thank you

  6. I’ve written every name down on the list and pray for each one. If you want me as a prayer warrior I will definitely be that. I pray for God to keep my mind open and listen to him so I can pray for what everyone needs at that time.

  7. Mike, just wanted to say something more. My mother had colon cancer over a year ago. I went through all her treatments with her and I now take care of her stoma (she’s 80 and can’t do it). I know people who’ve lived through this aren’t necessarily comforted by hearing other’s connection with this heart-wrenching disease, but for this reason, I feel I’ve been called to this DS book, specifically. God is good all the time–His timing is uncanny, unbelievable and supernatural. My prayer is that this book will touch the painful shadows in the cancer victim’s life, bring hope for tomorrow–no matter what the outcome of their walk–and boost caregivers to support with compassion and strength. I’m on this team and I’m praying for God’s leading here in evry word you write.

What readers are saying about A THOUSAND SLEEPLESS NIGHTS . . .

I have not been so deeply and utterly moved by a book in a very long time. A Thousand Sleepless Nights is a powerful and gripping novel that moved me greatly.
--Susan S.

A Thousand Sleeples Nights left me speechless as my heart and mind reconciled dealing with the trauma of cancer and a lifetime of regrets and finding God in the midst of it all. Sometimes a diagnosis of cancer can be God’s redemption.
--Jill J.

An emotionally steeped blessing of a story. One that pulled at my heart with one hand while holding a convicting mirror in the other.
--John U.

Great job. I hope and pray this book does for others what it did for me.
--Terri C.

I read A Thousand Sleepless Nights twice because it was that good. A very emotional story of a dysfunctional family, cancer, redemption and healing.
--Pat R.

I can really see how [this book] will be a blessing to many who have to face the devestation of cancer and loss.
--Tina H.

A Thousand Sleepless Nights will tug at your deepest emotions as it unfolds the evil of cancer and the power of relationships. The characters are endearing, real and relatable, as is the true battles they fight: illness, apathy, love, commitment and balancing life. King's novel strikes a vein, and sends hope to the heart of the matter--a fine read for anyone in need of healing.
--Donnalynn D.

This is a stirring novel that paints a great picture of cancer and its effects on not only those who have it, but their families and friends.
--Mark B.

A Thousand Sleepless Nights moved me so deeply I could not leave it alone until I’d read it completely. This bittersweet tale of illness--both physical and emotional--and the way lives are ultimately changed by its effects makes it a story for everyone, especially for those struggling to find forgiveness and healing.
--Claudette W.

A Thousand Sleepless Nights is a novel that touches you on a deep emotional level. It is a beautiful story about surviving, suffering, and what the true meaning of love is and how cancer, while devastating, can pull together a family torn apart by a past of neglect. A beautiful masterpiece!
--Joshua R.
