Bring comfort to the sick, the dying and their loved ones – that is what you try to do every day, and that is what this lovely booklet will help you do even better. No matter what your patient’s spiritual path, they will find words of comfort in this collection of over 200 short quotations, prayers and poems from around the world and across ten different faiths.
Similar in format to our Book of Comfort and Healing, this compilation focuses on the next step in life’s journey. Quoting famous writers and philosophers like C.S. Lewis and Cicero, it also includes sacred scripture from Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Sikhism and the Bahá’í Faith, with a few quotations from Zoroastrianism and Taoism. Every quotation, prayer and poem is carefully chosen to be both universal in its appeal and comforting in its message.
We also carry this title as a perfect bound book we call the gift edition.
These can be used in nursing homes, hospital chapels and waiting rooms, hospice centers, and even funeral homes. They are a great resource for planning memorial services as well.
We know that budgets are tight, so we’ve priced these so that you can afford to give them out freely.

“I have suffered from a genetic illness since my birth 55 years ago. I have beaten countless odds and made liars of many people who predicted my passing, including members of the medical profession.
But clearly God has a plan for me and I keep bouncing back. Recently I was guided to your booklet of prayers and inspirations from many faiths. It has become one more of the bounties and bestowals God showers on me. I have been reading it, sometimes with joy and laughter and sometimes with tears and a breaking heart but always I am comforted and inspired. And renewed, strengthened in my faith. Magnified in my love of God. Lead, encouraged and confirmed on my path and in His plan.
Thank you. For helping me to keep lifting my eyes, turning my face towards God, singing His Glories and for being among the ranks of those with whom He assists.”
Rev. Joe Holguin, MDiv –
Every day I visit men, women, and children who are in need of comfort and healing. The title of this interfaith piece, “Book of Comfort & Healing,” is readily accepted by the patients and families I attend to as a chaplain. The prayers and inspiration from several faiths enhance my ministry and enable me to bring comfort and healing to others here at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center/Miller Children’s Hospital Long Beach. “This is just what I was looking for,” and ” This will help me a great deal,” are just a couple of comments I have heard from some patients. Thank you.
