A flexible prayer book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Time to Pray (Common Worship) (Common Worship: Services and Prayers for the Church of England) (Leather Bound)
I loved this prayer book from the moment I opened the parcel. It's got a satisfying feel just to hold it in its soft case and it feels as though it will last.
I've just retired as a vicar and I wanted a short office book that I could use as I adjust to my new life. I didn't want something as full as the Franciscan Office Book (which I already have in short and long editions)but rather something which would enable and encourage me to pray flexibly. The introductory notes on preparing for prayer are helpful as are the explanations of structure etc. The two prayer framworks are short and use material from Common Worship but encourage use of other material. (I'm using it in conjunction with "Reflections for daily prayer, also published by Church House Publishing.)
