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.

Anytime people start talking about Eucharistic Adoration, one question always seems to come up: "A whole hour? What'll I do for a whole hour?" The purpose of this little book is to present at least a partial answer to that question enough to encourage you to give it a try if you've never done it, or to offer some additional suggestions if you've already spent some time in Adoration and would like to experiment with more ways to pray while you're there.
Popular meditations for every day, featuring a text from Sacred Scripture, a quotation from the writings of a Saint, and a meaningful prayer. Includes an introduction by Rev. Frederick Schroeder. Illustrated and printed in two colors. Includes ribbon marker.
