Prayers of Great Traditions

Full Product Description

Forms of daily prayer have been used throughout Christian history, and every Christian tradition encourages its adherents to practise regular personal prayer, calling it variously the Daily Office, the Divine Hours, Forms of Prayer, the Quiet Time or, more simply 'daily devotions'. This book draws on that rich tradition, offering daily structured prayer based on the prayers of key figures and traditions in Christian history. Over 31 days, the reader is invited to engage with and pray with the words of Augustine of Hippo, Julian of Norwich, Martin Luther, John Wesley, Soren Kierkegaard, Desmond Tutu, and the Franciscan and Benedictine offices, amongst many others. The language of the prayers has been updated to make them accessible to the modern reader, but the mood, sense and underlying theology of the originals have been retained. Including suggested Psalms and Bible readings for each day, this book offers a significant resource for personal prayer. However, more than this, it also offers a sense of worshipping in the the wisdom and insight of the great traditions, providing an opportunity to engage personally with the whole spectrum of Christian experience.
