An invaluable source of prayers for all situations.
on 3 January 2003
This book of prayers is ideal for those praying alone or leading intercessions for a larger group and indeed for any situation in between.
Subjects include Praise,Special Occasions, Worship, Healing, Death, Quietness, Birthdays,Growing Old....and many more, covering every facet of human life. The prayers are arranged in easy to find sections and are therefore extremely useful when preparing for any type of worship. They are also arranged in alphabetical order, by author and by theme so making it simple to find any sort of prayer you need.
As for the prayers themselves the variety is amazing, ranging from those written within the last few years to one written by St. Jerome round about 400AD! The prayers vary in length, language, tradition and style, and whereas some would suit the more mature in years, there are just as many for the younger reader.
Prayers for participation are also included with several having simple responses for groups of any size to repeat. There are even hints on how to pray in a variety of situations and how to use the book itself.
This book is not just a book of many prayers but also one of many uses and for many people. Buy, search, find and pray!
