A Guide to Prayer for All Who Seek God Norman Shawchuck, Rueben P. Job
Treasures from the first centuries of faith are timelessly relevant. Through original prefaces and quoted texts from old and new sources, A Guide to Prayer for All Who Seek God connects you to the ages and with God by encouraging the habit of simple, reflective prayer.
“Living a week, a month, a year or a lifetime with the sacred writing of scripture along with the ancient and contemporary spiritual guides is to live a transformed life,” write the authors. “‘Real’ spirituality dawns when our life with God becomes as real as the problems and joys we experience each day. As we become naturally aware of God throughout the day…at is truly the spiritual life.”
If you hunger for God and for an authentic daily spiritual life, you’ll find a substantive path through this third volume of the Guide to Prayer series.
For nearly 20 years, people have turned to this series for a daily rhythm of devotion and personal worship. Thousands of readers appreciate its simple structure of daily worship, rich spiritual writings, lectionary guidelines and poignant prayers.
Like its predecessors, A Guide to Prayer for All Who Seek God will become a treasured favorite for those hungering for God as the Christian year unfolds.
Each day offers guidance for an opening affirmation, a petition of prayer, and daily scripture selections. Themed “Readings for Reflection” include excerpts from writers such as Frederick Buechner, Joyce Rupp, Henri Nouwen, Mother Teresa, Howard Thurman, C.S. Lewis, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, John Wesley and others.
This is a marvelous gift book for friends, family or yourself for any occasion. Also available in a deluxe leatherette edition.
