CALM THE SOUL A BOOK OF SIMPLE WISDOM AND PRAYER

product image
$23.95

Using simple prayer ideas and meditations, the Poor Clares teach that success lies in complete trust in God 

Prayer and holiness is for everyone in every situation. We will never achieve true happiness as long as we continue to search for it outside the very source of love, which we know is God himself.

The Poor Clares look at ways prayer can incorporate into everyday life. They recognize that in today's busy world, many people neglect their souls and focus instead on the mind and body. In direct contrast to those fixated on spectacular results, appearances, control, and a tireless craving for success, the Poor Clares instead try to live life as Jesus teaches in the Bible. Using their simple prayer ideas and meditations, everyone can learn to speak to God in a direct way to bring Him to their everyday lives.

Prayer Book for Widows

Our Wedding Anniversary

Dear God, As the anniversary of our wedding draws near, I pray again that You will hold him in Your gentle embrace. Share with him the endless joy of knowing You. Shower him with Your love and grace. Remind him, if it be Your will, of my undying love for him.

These days sometimes are hard for me, as memories of our sweet vows wring my heart and sorrowful tears flow silently. So as I walk this earth alone, I ask You please for grace. Give me courage and give me strength. For in my weakness You are strong. And I have faith in You alone.

Oh, Lord, I pray that on the day my journey ends, and I come home to You, that my beloved be there waiting, too. Reunite us for all eternity in Your everlasting love. Till then I wait in hopeful faith and pray to You. Amen.

This is a prayer book like no other, written by a widow for widows. The prayers center on the emotions and situations a widow faces. It is a powerful resource for grief ministers, family members, and friends. It makes a thoughtful gift.

PRAYER FOR PEOPLE WHO CANT SIT STILL

in
product image
$18.99

Prayer has long had an action component to it. There are many ways we can pray that involve our senses and our bodies. Journaling, skipping rocks, drawing, singing, touching, dancing, even walking can be acts of prayer. William Tenny-Brittian, himself diagnosed with adult ADHD, goes back to ancient times and into the techno-generation to share ten types of kinesthetic prayer that will help even the most fidgety connect with God. He has filled Prayer for People Who Can't Sit Still with ideas, easy-to-follow instructions, and ways to adapt kinesthetic prayer to most any situation and "personal limitation." Kinesthetic prayer can also have profound effects on the prayer life of children and youth. Prayer for People Who Can't Sit Still is a valuable resource in children's and youth ministries, helping these action-oriented age groups to find ways to build relationships with God. A relationship takes time together, says William Tenny-Brittian. Prayer for People Who Can't Sit Still is written to help you spend more meaningful time with God.

BLESSED PEACEMAKERS 365 EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE WHO CHANGED THE WORLD

product image
$45.00

All of us yearn for a peaceable and just world, but some roll up their sleeves and set to work to make the dream real. Blessed Peacemakers celebrates 365 of them, one for each day of the year.

Their stories are richly diverse. They share a commitment to peace and justice, but the various contexts in which they work make each of their stories uniquely instructive. The peacemakers include women, men, and children from across the globe, spanning some twenty-five hundred years. Many are persons of faith, but some are totally secular. Some are well known, while others will be excitingly new. They are human rights and antiwar activists, scientists and artists, educators and scholars, songwriters and poets, film directors and authors, diplomats and economists, environmentalists and mystics, prophets and policymakers. Some are unlettered, but all are wise. A few died in the service of the dream. All sacrificed for it.

The world is a better place for the presence of blessed peacemakers. Their inspiring stories embolden readers to join them in nonviolent resistance to injustice and the creative pursuit of peace.

BOOK OF PRAYERS A GUIDE TO PUBLIC AND PERSONAL INTERCESSIONS

in
product image
$12.00

In the spirit of the Book of Common Prayer, Art Nelson provides a new collection of public and private prayers to help us meet the uncertainties of life with the dignity of prayer. Often when situations of very specific pain or joy arise (pregnancy at risk, marriage crisis, addiction, psychosis, incarceration, rape, celebrating wedding or anniversary, victory over abuse, etc.), we struggle to find the right words to pray for that situation. The high emotion of the moment or the longstanding nature of a chronic illness or the shock of enduring a national crisis leave us frustrated at just the time when we want and need to pray. This is a difficult and uncertain time for individuals, communities and nations. These timely and sensitive prayers are meant to stimulate reflection and provide reassurance--both for us and for those we pray for.
