Dear God, it's Me and it's Urgent: Prayers for Every Season of a Woman's Life
Dear God, it's Me and it's Urgent: Prayers for Every Season of a Woman's Life
by Marion Stroud
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 6.10

5.0 out of 5 stars ‘Yes! That’s exactly how I feel!’, 7 April 2014
Are you ever in a place where you need to pray but the words don’t come? That may be a situation of gladness or of sorrow, of abundance or need, of calm or crisis… and you lack the words to express the depth of joy, turmoil or anguish you are feeling?
Marion Stroud, a long established and much-loved Christian author, has written two books of prayers which forsake the sentimental and predictable. Most women will find themselves responding to the down-to-earth reality of her prayers with, ‘Yes! That’s exactly how I feel!’
Marion’s prayers deal with a wide range of issues and challenges that all women grapple with at different seasons of their lives: everything from love, marriage and mothering to career, redundancy and retirement. There are even prayers concerned with issues like encountering domestic violence, communication problems, pain, depression, ageing and death.
But actually, these are more than prayers. They are thoughtful conversations with God which give an opportunity for reflection and insight. Reading slowly and meditatively through them can give jumbled thoughts a chance to sort themselves into some sort of order, can help with indecision, can even equip for action.
Dear God, It’s Me and It’s Urgent and It’s Just You and Me, Lord, both attractively laid out hardbacks from Marion Stroud, are published by Lion Hudson, at 8.99 each. They make excellent gifts for the women in your life.

This is a thoughtfully-arranged collection that is a pleasure to use at pre-Christmas events, with the benefit of an accompanying CD of the arranger's piano playing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Should this be a necessary purchase?, 23 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The printer design demands that a toner scavenging vessel has to be taken out when full, but doesn't allow the user to empty it. Boo.

3.0 out of 5 stars At least they are a bit cheaper, 23 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The real problem is with Lexmark who produce great printers that chew up toner like there is no tomorrow and charge the earth for their cartridges. Compatible toner suppliers simply charge a bit less than Lexmark, knowing that they can get all the orders they want without having to discount further.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great collection, 23 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like the other album 'Sing lustily and with good courage', this is a brilliant way of re-creating past glories in singing that would otherwise be forgotten. Maddy's clear and beautiful singing voice is such a pleasure to listen to - but it's also the work that goes into the band arrangements and playing that is so attractive.

Found this a fascinating read - a creative well-plotted novel which really helped me understand the world of the mental health patient.

It doesn't make a lot of sense to buy batteries in the high street anymore. These last as well as the standard Energise or Duracell, in my experience.

Unapologetic: Why, despite everything, Christianity can still make surprising emotional sense
Unapologetic: Why, despite everything, Christianity can still make surprising emotional sense

5.0 out of 5 stars My book of the year!, 1 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the most refreshing reads I've had for ages - I saw the Guardian extract and ordered my copy on the strength of that. I've read other Spufford books and found all of them to be creative and unusual. His assertive and 'unapologetic' stance on the value of having a spiritual life beyond the distractions we all suffer was one that made me feel like cheering out loud. And I learned the most valuable acronym I've ever come across: 'HPtFtU' which so accurately describes the mess we get into even when that's the last thing we want.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good production, 1 Jun 2012
I bought this mainly for 'Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace', which I love. The rest of the SS anthems I didn't know as well but are now growing on me.
