Give Give Us GraceUs Grace: An Anthology of Anglican Prayers
by Christopher L. Webber / Hardcover / May 2004

Anglican Christians are the heirs to a rich tradition. No other family of churches has been praying in English as long as the Anglicans, whose prayers have been dominated by the rhythm and beauty of the Book of Common Prayer. Anglicans blend what is best from the Celtic, Orthodox Christian, and Roman Catholic traditions, and add to them ideas important to Anglicans -- nature, incarnation, social justice, and more - to create unique and often beautiful prayers. Give Us Grace provides an overview of Anglican prayers from the beginning of that tradition up to the present day. A collection that spans the ages and the continents, the book is arranged chronologically, from writers such as Miles Coverdale and Thomas Cranmer, through the sixteenth-century, and continuing with contemporary writers such as Desmond Tutu, David Adam, Madeleine L'Engle, and others. Biographies of each writer are provided. Prayers from a variety of Anglican prayer books, such as the First Primer of Edward VI, the New Zealand Prayer Book, and prayer books from South Africa, Kenya, Japan, Canada, Australia, and others also are included. Give Us Grace is an excellent reference tool, a valuable devotional resource, and an ideal gift.


Running Running with JesusWith Jesus : The Prayers of Malcolm Boyd

Many are new&emdash;just for this volume. Youll resonate with Boyd as he exposes his fears and failures, his joys and his love through these prayers. Ten sections dealing with issues from gritty urban life to sexuality and prayers of joy for simple pleasures help you find prayers relevant to your own situation. Most of all, youll find a model for expressing yourself&emdash;all of yourself&emdash;to God in new ways. This is must-reading for anyone looking to broaden their life of prayer.

Daring to Daring to Draw NearDraw Near
Prayers That Help Us Know Who God Is
by John White / Paperback / Sep 2000

Author John White takes us on a journey through ten of the most significant prayers in history, all recorded in the Bible. We listen in as Abraham pleads for Sodom and Gomorrah, as David confesses his sin, as Hannah prays for a child, as Paul intercedes for others, and as Jesus poured his heart out to his heavenly Father. White explores the prayers of Abraham, Jacob, Moses, Job, Daniel, David, Hannah, Paul, and Jesus, giving us a window on prayer and the God to whom we pray--a God who is interested in "two-way" communication.


P.S. God, PS God Can You Fly?Can You Fly? : Heartfelt and Hope-Filled Prayers of Children
by R. Wayne Willis / Paperback / January 2002

Beautifully written, poignant meditations on spiritual struggle, as seen through the eyes of children. Willis, a longtime hospital chaplain, has collected prayers left in the chapel of the childrens hospital where he works. He lists 30 of these prayers, then offers some words of insight into their meaning, both for the child and for us.

What makes the prayers of children unique? "The prayers are remarkably uninhibited," Willis writes. "Unbound by conventional notions of how prayers should be structured and worded, these children freely pray what they mean and what they pray. The result: prayer unflowery, unedited, unrefined, unvarnished--the kind of prayer not to be heard in a formal Sunday morning church service! Most of the prayers are starkly urgent. Children composed them, not in a classroom, not to satisfy a Sunday school teacher, but in the fiery furnace of a tertiary care hospital, where stakes--the life and health of a love one--couldn't be higher."


Praying Praying with Katiewith Katie
By Don Holt, Jr / Hardcover / March 2001

Unemployed -- depressed about the past and anxious about the future -- Don Holt had both time and motive to doubt and pray about the "trip" on which he was being taken. These daily times of wondering and praying were continuously interrupted by his cat, Katie. The lessons he learned from that cat, about the trip with God and love and himself, is the heart of this profound book on faith. Praying With Katie provides a different, and wonderful, perspective for everyone who is looking for new ways to experience God. It is a heartwarming and inspiring book.


Abba Father
By Kenneth Stevenson / Paperback / Jan 2001

In Abba Father, Kenneth Stevenson superbly weaves together biblical, historical, and theological wisdom to illuminate the different versions of the prayer we have in their Gospel contexts, and the prayer's literary shape. Stevenson writes as a priest and pastoral counselor as he discusses the prayer's public and private use, and the way it summarizes the entire gospel and provides a pattern for Christian living.

Kenneth Stevenson is the Anglican bishop of Portsmouth, where he lives, and a member of the Doctrine Commission of the Church of England. He is the author of numerous books, including The Mystery of Baptism in the Anglican Tradition and The Mystery of the Eucharist in the Anglican Tradition.

Circle of Grace :Circle of Grace Praying With-And For-Your Children
by Gregory Wolfe, Suzanne Wolfe, Joanne Wyckoff (Editor) / Hardcover / Nov 2000 *

Prayer, it has been said, is the natural language of the heart. Indeed, surveys reveal that Americans overwhelmingly believe in the power and efficacy of prayer. Yet many parents feel uncertain about introducing their children to prayer because they themselves have forgotten--or never learned--how to pray. Consequently, their children too are kept in the dark, uncertain how to start, what to say. Now Circle of Grace gives parents the inspiration, confidence, and practical help they need to begin integrating prayer into the fabric of family life. This compelling book contains more than four hundred prayers from many faiths--as fresh and moving today as when they were first uttered.
