Leading Common Worship IntercessionsBarry Vendy, via The Good Book Stall
This book will help you if you’re asked to lead the Prayers of Intercession in your local church’s worship. Chaplin starts ‘at the very beginning’ for those who have no experience at this, but in later chapters also offers guidelines ‘for those who have begun to stretch their wings’. The principles are the same for all of us, whether Church of England or not. Chaplin writes that even spontaneity will be helped by structure, and preparation doesn’t conflict with inspiration. He has just one ‘rule’ – “You are leading people in prayer, not praying in front of people.”
This is a very practical ‘how-to’ book, containing many patterns and illustrations, devoting chapters to responses (“keep it short and simple”) and participation, and the use of music. It’s short, too (only 66 pages, including appendices, one of which is a lively exercise in spotting what’s wrong with some specimen intercessions)! A useful book.
