Please Pray: A Testimony to the Power of Prayer
By Vicki Shreiner and Friends
Edited by Carolyne Hart

It's hard for any parent to imagine their child's kindergarten year turning into a fight for their child's life but that's exactly what Vicki and Steve Shreiner faced in 2009.  Diagnosed with a rare recurrence of a cancer he had successfully beat three years earlier, Ryan was thrown into a year of intense treatments to save his life.  

This gripping and uplifting 440-page book shares the details of their journey, including miracle after miracle leading to Ryan's life now as a happy, healthy, cancer-free third grader. 

This book began as Vicki's CaringBridge journal updates for friends and family as well as their notes of encouragement to the Shreiners.  This journal became a lifeline for the Shreiners because they saw over and over the power of prayer.  As soon as Vicki posted a new prayer request, she knew that dozens of Resurrection Christian School students and staff, Resurrection Fellowship pastors and prayer warriors around the country would be lifting them up to God.  They experienced miracle after miracle and peace that is only possible with Jesus as our partner. 

By publishing Please Pray, friends helped to transform this into a permanent record of the Shreiner's journey.  Our purpose is to build your faith and love for our Lord Jesus Christ and to show you first hand that:

  • Your prayers matter and are powerful in impacting lives;
  • When we face a trial, even one as huge as cancer in a child, Jesus is right there with us providing miraculous strength, peace, healing and joy regardless of circumstances and outcomes;
  • We can live our lives with faith and not fear, knowing that Jesus is our partner in all things.

What Others are Saying:
"I was inspired in 2009 as I watched Vicki and Steve Shreiner rest in the power of prayer as Ryan's Kindergarten year became his cancer journey year. Now, reading this wonderful book reminds me that whatever journey lies ahead, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." - Lauren Benzel

"Please Pray is the perfect title for this book. Mrs. Shreiner was so good at giving specific prayer requests. God was faithful and answered our prayers for Ryan. My own faith was encouraged and strengthened as I observed the Shreiner's absolute trust in God." - Phyllis Hallin
