Our newly revised guide to personal prayer assembles a wide range of prayers, among them devotions, daily prayers, acts of thanksgiving, family prayers, grace before meals, personal prayers, prayers for guidance and surrender, intercessions, litanies, medications, benedictions, prayers for special occasions, prayers for times of war, and prayers for Holy Communication.
Under one cover, this booklet combines "The Celebration and Blessing of a Marriage," from the Book of Common Prayer, with all the suggested scripture readings from the New Revised Standard Version of the Bible. a very helpful resource for clergy and couples as they plan for weddings celebrated in the Episcopal Church. (Includes "The Declaration of Intention.").
After sending a request to each bishop to ask those being confirmed what questions they had about the church, God, and life in general, the Forward Movement editors culled the replies and respond here with brief, straightforward, to-the-point answers. Ideal for confirmands and newcomers of all ages, this booklet aims not to rehash the topics of the typical confirmation manual, but rather to answer the questions people really ask--questions on life and death, about perplexing moral issues, or on being a Christian--questions both profound and light-hearted, and occasionally intensely personal. -- Provided by publisher.
The colorful cover of this book expands to form a small easel with prayers that can be read from both sides of the table. Suitably designed for your family table, it makes possible the offering of regular, daily thanksgiving before your meals, reminding us that we live every moment of our lives in the near presence of God in Christ. A wonderful gift for family and friends!
